Eden Hazard had a year left on his then contract at Chelsea before he made the move to the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu in the summer.
Real Madrid paid a club-record fee of around €100m for Eden Hazard to complete a move to the club in the summer.
He was a key player for Chelsea during his seven-game stay at the club and Frank Lampard was unable to sign a replacement for him due to the transfer ban imposed on the club by FIFA as at the summer.
Chelsea are now free to sign players as per the recent verdict from the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) and Frank Lampard wants to sign a replacement for Eden Hazard who scored 110 goals for the Blues while he was at the club.
