Real Madrid To Offer Chelsea One Of Two Players For Eden Hazard
The 28-year-old Belgium international has been linked with a move to Los Blancos since last summer’s World Cup, with the Spanish club eager for him to fill the void that Cristiano Ronaldo left after his departure to Juventus.
According to the Daily Mail, the reigning Champions League holders will move for Hazard at the end of the season and will try one method to push a deal through.
The newspaper claims that either Isco or Marco Asensio will be offered to the Blues in return for the Chelsea star.
Madrid boss Santiago Solari is already looking ahead to the next season and is willing to sacrifice Isco or Asensio if he can land Hazard.
Hazard recently revealed that he has made a decision on his future, though he didn’t specify whether that meant he was staying at Stamford Bridge or playing in La Liga.
“I know what I am going to do. I have made a decision,” he told RMC.
Hazard, who signed for the Blues from Lille in 2012, has made 232 appearances for the London club and scored on 81 occasions.
He has 18 months remaining on his contract, so Chelsea would be in a difficult position if he doesn’t sign an extension in the summer.
In fact, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has already said that he wouldn’t be able to stop Hazard leaving the club if that’s what the Belgian ace wants.
“Eden is 28. If he wants to go, I think he has to go,” he said (via the Evening Standard).
“Of course, I hope the opposite. I hope he wants to stay here. He has the potential to be the best player in Europe at the moment.”
Should Hazard stay at Chelsea or leave for Madrid?
