The call of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu is likely to prove hard to resist for Eden Hazard in the upcoming transfer window with Chelsea under pressure to at least sit down and hear out Real Madrid’s offer.
Hazard signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract with Chelsea in 2015 and has been outstanding for Antonio Conte’s Blues this season, serving to add even more to his price-tag.
However, Madrid may have to sell Isco or Rodriguez in order to accommodate Hazard, but it remains to be seen if either player wish to leave. Rodriguez has been consistently linked with a move away from Madrid in recent transfer windows.
Diego Costa recently said he would not be surprised if Madrid targeted Hazard and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois this summer considering their excellent recent form.
“If Real Madrid were to sign Hazard and Courtois, poor Chelsea!” the Spain striker said following Chelsea’s FA Cup quarter-final victory over Manchester United on Monday night.
