According to reports, Real Madrid have been handed some encouragement that Belgium forward Eden Hazard could be lured to Spain due to his contract situation at Stamford Bridge.
As reported by Marca, the Champions League holders are trying to replace their embattled once feared front three of Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, French Karim Benzema and Welsh Gareth Bale after a poor start to this campaign.
Eden Hazard is among their transfer targets in a complete attacking overhaul, with publication also suggesting President Florentino Perez wants to make ambitious moves for Paris Saint Germain attacker Neymar Jr. and Bayern forward Robert Lewandowski.
While the former Barcelona forward looks very unrealistic to move so soon after his transfer from the Catalan club to PSG, the news outfit claim that Eden Hazard may be achievable as he is yet to sign a contract extension that currently runs out in 2020.
The Belgium international attacking midfielder is one of the best-attacking talents in the game and could be a decent direct replacement for the current World Best player in Real Madrid’s attack, and he has claimed an interest in a transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu in the past.
Marca claim Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane is a huge fan of Eden Hazard, and the forward too has said working under the French tactician would be a dream.
