Real Madrid are set to test Chelsea’s resolve over unsettled star Eden Hazard with a stunning £120million opening bid for the Belgian international.
Hazard, now in his sixth season at Stamford Bridge, was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s 5-0 win over Stoke on Saturday, and his father has suggested he has turned down a new contract at Stamford Bridge in favour of a switch to Spain.
The Blues are keen to get him to re-sign so that he doesn’t lose his value, as his current deal expires in 2020. They know Real will have an easier time negotiating the closer it gets to expiring.
But Zinedine Zidane is so keen to make the former Lille man his first real Galactico signing, he is willing to smash the British transfer record with his opening bid.
GRAB THIS LADBROKES OFFER!!
Antonio Conte will no doubt play hard ball with his biggest asset, but Chelsea could receive a huge sum of money for Hazard.
