Chelsea star Eden Hazard has issued a come and get me plea to Real Madrid ahead of a potential move this summer.
The Belgian has been the subject of interest from Real Madrid for a number of years now but a deal has never come to fruition.
Now, it looks as though it finally might after comments made by Hazard this week.
The forward is no doubt Chelsea’s star man but the clubs plans for next season are very much up in the air, with Antonio Conte still the manager.
It was expected that he would be sacked and a new boss would be brought in but that is still not the case and no progress has been made on transfers.

He's certainly given the club fair warning.
If we don't show the ambition he (and fans) expect then he'll leave with my thanks and my respect.
That is not good news in their hopes to keep hold of Eden Hazard, as he admitted he will not be sticking around unless they improve.
Not only that, the most ominous comment from the Belgian was him claiming that Real Madrid ‘know what they have to do if they want me.’
“If I stay then it would be because they are going to improve on last season,” he explained to L’Equipe.
“I am not going to remain if they are going to be worse.
“Real Madrid could be interesting for me as everyone knows. They know what they have to do if they want me.
“If it is going to Madrid just to go there then no. I need a project and at Chelsea, I have one.
“To say that I am going would be too easy and so, first of all, I want to see what will happen at Chelsea ahead of next season. I want to see if the coach stays or not.”
Chelsea need to move and move fast to find a new manager if they want to keep hold of their most prized asset.
