Spanish giant, Real Madrid are ready to make Chelsea superstar, Eden Hazard their next big signing, according to Spanish media.
The Belgium playmaker who is in top form has been long admired by Los Blancos, who bought Thibaut Courtois away from Stamford Bridge in the last transfer window.
According to Marca, they will utilise the same ploy with Hazard. Dubbed ‘The Hazard Plan’, Real hope to exploit the Belgian’s contract situation in order to get him relatively cheaply.
AS also reported that the La Liga giants have made Hazard their primary target for the winter transfer window. The Spanish publication also says that almost 85 percent of supporters want him to be signed in January.
Hazard’s contract is up in the summer of 2020 and last weekend he said he is willing to open negotiations.
If they come to me, then I will talk,’ said Hazard of Real’s interest after scoring his eighth goal of the season in a 3-0 win at Southampton on Sunday. ‘I could talk now.’
