Eden Hazard is Real Madrid’s No.1 target ahead of the summer, according to reports
Monday, February 19, 2018
Real Madrid are ready to offer £100million PLUS Gareth Bale to sign Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard this summer, according to reports.
The LaLiga giants have apparently made Hazard their number one target ahead of the summer transfer window and are planning to test the Blues’ resolve the keep their star man.
Hazard has two years left to run on his current Chelsea contract and the Premier League club are keen to tie him down to new terms.
However, no deal has yet materialised and reports claim he is stalling on extending his Stamford Bridge stay, despite the offer of making him one of the highest-paid players in England.
And, according to the Daily Express, Real are ready to pounce and are planning a mouth-watering offer for the Belgium international.
The Los Blancos hierarchy are desperate to strengthen their squad this summer after falling behind fierce rivals Barcelona this season. Real currently sit fourth in the LaLiga table, 17 points behind the table-topping Catalans.
They have identified Hazard as the man to fire them back to title contention and are willing to part with Welsh winger Bale to make the deal happen.
Bale has suffered a frustrating season in Madrid with a string of injuries keeping him on the sidelines and seeing him miss 14 games.
However, he has enjoyed a decent return in 2018 and was named the club’s Player of the Month for January after scoring five goals. He has nine goals and six assists altogether this season.
The Wales international has won 12 trophies with Real, including three Champions League titles, but after five years in Spain he could set for a return to the Premier League.
