Report: Real hoping to tempt Chelsea for Hazard this summer
Real Madrid’s attack already features some of the world’s brightest stars, but Zinedine Zidane apparently isn’t content with his squad.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the reigning UEFA Champions League holders are set to bid for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard this summer, with Real willing to offer striker Alvaro Morata and cash to the London side.
Hazard, 26, has posted 11 goals and added four assists during the current Premier League season for Antonio Conte’s club.
Reports out of England have recently suggested that Hazard will instead sign a new contract with Chelsea, however, Real will be banking on the fact that an opportunity to join forces with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale doesn’t come along too often.
Chelsea currently sits atop the PL on 66 points, and could be in store for a double this campaign as the club continues its path through the FA Cup.
