Real Madrid are ready to splash £ 100m ( € 115m) on Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
According to speculations coming from Spain the Blancos have been in contact with the Belgian player for months, and – as also ChelseaNews24 reported a couple of months ago- Hazard already visited the Champions of Europe training ground in Valdebebas, where he also met the chairman Florentino Perez.
Actually, this was something not legal from both parts, as FIFA regulations clearly express that a player cannot negotiate with another team without the express authorization of his original club, but it’s not so uncommon in modern football.
Furthermore, it seems that Real Madrid have met with Hazard’s entourage on three separate occasions in 2017 and that is the first target of the Spanish giants to revamp their squad next summer, with their manager Zinedine Zidane – that is Eden’s childhood hero- who never hid his huge admiration for Hazard, one of his favourite players:
“After Messi and Ronaldo, Hazard is my favourite player. It is spectacular to see him play. Do I see him going to Real Madrid? I love the player, that’s all I will say,” the Frenchman said in 2015.
Recent reports have claimed Chelsea have been in talks with Hazard over a new contract, but the club may have cause for concern over his future now, as Real Madrid are ready to tempt both the player and the club with a monster offer ( £100m, at least £10m for Eden) that would become the all-time-record transfer fee.
