Real Madrid are ready to make an opening offer for Chelsea ace Eden Hazard.
Real will kick off the bidding for Hazard at £70m, says The Sun.
The Spanish giants know Chelsea will turn down the bid but this is the start of their statement of intent to land Hazard.
Real representatives have already visited London for talks on a deal for the Belgian superstar.
That move was the start of a process which will lead to Hazard moving to the Bernabeu as one of a series of high-profile signings by Zinedine Zidane.
