Barcelona eye Chelsea star as Suarez alternative

Barcelona will turn their attention to Chelsea star Eden Hazard if they are unable to tie up a stunning deal for Luis Suarez, according to reports from The Mirror.

The La Liga giants are set for a major summer overhaul on the back of a disappointing campaign, and are believed to have made the Liverpool superstar their top ‘marquee’ target.

Rumours have suggested that Alexis Sanchez may be used in a swap deal, or that the club may just go all out with a mega money offer.

Yet there are concerns that a deal to get his signature could end up costing close to £200m with fees and wages taken into consideration, which would be a problem for even a team of Barca’s stature.

With Liverpool also far from keen to sell, Hazard has emerged as an alternative.

The Belgian enjoyed a fantastic 2013/14 with the Blues, building on his reputation as one of the Premier League’s very best attackers.

PSG have also been linked with his signature, but the Catalans could be a more attractive option.
