Real Madrid are prepared to go all-out this summer to sign Chelsea’s man-of-the-moment Eden Hazard.
That’s according to the Mirror, who report that Zinedine Zidane and Florentino Perez are in agreement on the importance of luring the Belgian to the Bernabeu.
For now, the playmaker is focused on helping Chelsea to the title, but it seems only a matter of time before that goal is achieved.
Los Blancos are growing more and more confident that Hazard won’t be able to resist their advances for a number of reasons.
It’s going to take a massive bid to tempt Chelsea into selling. However, few would be surprised if Real were the club to smash the current world record fee of £89million, which Manchester United paid to Juventus for Paul Pogba last year.
HAZARD SOUNDS KEEN
The newspaper claim that there are “encouraging signs” that Hazard is ready to leave Stamford Bridge. If the Blues win the title for the second time in three seasons, he’ll have achieved his aims in England and could look for a new challenge elsewhere.
A MASSIVE DEAL ON THE TABLE
Perez is prepared to sanction an impressive pay rise for the midfielder, even if that could cause unrest among the Galacticos already at the club.
MORATA IS A BARGAINING CHIP
Chelsea’s long-standing interest in Alvaro Morata could be key. The Spain striker is set to leave Madrid anyway, but Zidane can offer him as a makeweight in any deal for Hazard.
