Real Madrid are desperate to sign Eden Hazard as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, according to the Express. The report further adds that the La Liga side are willing to increase their offer for the Belgian and pay the £200m that Chelsea want.
Hazard was one of the stars of the World Cup but the report claims that he is not looking for a move away from the Bridge.
“Hazard has congratulated me on signing for Real Madrid.
“He is a great player and I would like to be always at his side, let’s see what happens in the future.
“If he can come [to Real Madrid], it would be fantastic.”
The report adds that the Belgian winger is stalling on a new contract.
“Hazard is with us.
“It is not a problem, I have spoken with his three or four times.
“He never said anything about the market.”
The transfer market is still open for the non-Premier League sides and it would be a big blow for us to lose Hazard.
The Belgian played in the 3-0 win over Huddersfield and we should see the best of him under Sarri.
Even if Madrid are willing to pay a record amount for the Belgian winger, we have to do everything in our power to ensure he stays at the club.
