Real Madrid open discussions for Chelsea winger
Real Madrid have opened talks with Chelsea over the summer transfer of talismanic winger Eden Hazard, per the Daily Mail.
The 26-year-old has rediscovered his best form this season, inspiring the Blues to the top of the Premier League and the brink of a fifth title.
According to Marca, Real are already in discussions for the Belgium star, who has been forced to miss out on World Cup qualification duty this week through injury.
The report claims he is Los Blancos’ top target ahead of a summer squad overhaul and the player has even found a perspective house to buy in Madrid.
Although he has always maintained commitment to the Stamford Bridge cause, Hazard is believed to have asked Chelsea to entertain any registered interest from the current LaLiga leaders.
Owner Roman Abramovich hopes that giving Antonio Conte a £200million warchest will persuade Hazard to stay, but the message has always been clear from him that if Real call, he will pack his bags and head for Spain.
