Spanish paper AS revealed that Chelsea rejected a €45m offer for Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid.

Rojiblancos‘ manager Diego Pablo Simeone was really keen on getting back the striker that has struggled during this campaign in the Premier League – even if with Guus Hiddink he’s keeping a good scoring rate- but the Blues didn’t accept to negotiate, even when Atletico tried to put Jackson Martinez in the deal.

Jamie Vardy is having an impressing season with Leicester © Francesca Ceciarini

The Blues are keen on signing the leading Premier Leagues top scorer Jamie Vardy, and would be willing to offer Loic Remy to Leicester City in part exchange for the 29-year-old English striker.

The Foxes would surely kiss their title hopes goodbye by selling their main hitman though, and “have no intention” of letting Vardy leave before the transfer deadline.

FIFA just announced to have banned Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid from signing new players for the next two transfer windows: summer 2016 and winter 2017 for illegal actions in the young players market.

The two clubs can still be operative and sign players in this section, winter 2016, and they can still sell players if they want in the next two.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard was linked to Real Madrid more than once over the past months, and it is rumoured that his bad form this season is due to the interest of the Spanish giants, that would distract him.

With just this session left and then having the market blocked for one year, will Real Madrid try to get Hazard before the end of January?

The Blancos are used to sign at least one top player every summer, but since next summer they won’t be able to do any signing, it’s possible they will try to get as many players as they can in this winter transfer window.

Everyone knows that Eden Hazard has been on their and Zidane‘s top list for months: Chelsea could ask around 60/65m £ to sell the Belgian star but they also can try a swap with some Real Madrid stars: James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale are on Abramovich‘s wishlist in case the deal can be completed.

Chelsea star Eden Hazard is undergoing a disappointing season with the Blues and he is far from the top level he let him won the Best Player of the Year Award in the last campaign.

He was rumoured to join soon Spanish giants Real Madrid, where yesterday Zinedine Zidane– his chilhood idol – took charge as the new manager.

A swap with some of the Blancos top-players like Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez or Isco is possible, but according to The Sun Hazard will decide his future when the next Chelsea permanent manager name will be announced.

Eden Hazard hasn’t shown any of the top form that led him to be voted the best player in the Premier League last year in this season and his bad performances are starting to upset Chelsea fans.

The Belgian failed to score a goal in the season so far, and we are already in January.

In the last month he suffered two minor injuries that ruled him out of some important games and didn’t help him to find again his top form.

Probably Hazard is also distracted by transfer market rumours, that want him day by day closer to Real Madrid.

The Belgian could join the Blancos in a swap with one of their stars: James Rodriguez has been in Chelsea’s radar for months, but now a new name is on Abramovich’s list: Isco.

The Spanish midfielder hadn’t much consideration from manager Rafa Benitez, that was sacked yesterday.

Everything is in Zinedine Zidane‘s hands: if the new Real Madrid manager will succeed in giving James and Isco both playing time and confidence, the swap will be hard to do.

Real Madrid are the richest club of the world, anyway, and every summer they try to sign a top player to revamp their stunning squad: in case the swap won’t be successful, the Blancos still got money.

And Hazard is valued around £80m. Not so bad for Chelsea, at all.

Jackson Martinez’s agent Henrique Pompei didn’t deny rumours of his client heading to Chelsea.

The Colombian striker was a flop at Atletico Madrid, where he moved last summer from Porto, and scored just 2 goals in 11 appearances, so day by day speculations increase about a swap with Diego Costa that, despite the two goals scored against Watford in the Boxing Day, is not having a great season at Chelsea.

The Spaniard would like to go back to his former club in the Spanish capital, and when Pompei was asked about Blues’ interest in Martinez, he revealed:

“I can’t say it’s a lie, this is football and nobody knows what the future holds, what I can say is that Jackson isn’t a player who leaves a club unless it’s through the front door”.

The market is opening in just three days, so we will just have to wait to see if the deal can be close soon.

According to Spanish website Fichajes.com Chelsea are ready to swap Diego Costa with Atletico Madrid striker Jackson Martinez.

Both forwards are striking at their current sides: Diego Costa scored just 3 goals in 14 Premier League, while Martinez netted only 2 in 11 matches in La Liga.

The Colombian moved to Atletico from Porto last summer for £35m but since his performances were disappointing he can move soon.

Costa moved to Chelsea in summer 2014 for £30m and after a terrific first season where he gave a huge contribution to secure the Premier League title he’s struggling to have the best form this year, having now also issues with the fans that booed him in the last match against Sunderland for his poor performances and because he is believed to have taken down former manager José Mourinho.

For Costa it would be a return to Atletico Madrid, where he played for four seasons before heading off to the Blues.
