At a time when Chelsea could do without further bad news, it has emerged that Real Madrid have made contact with Eden Hazard over a potential move. Metro are claiming that reports are rife in Spain that both parties have discussed the possibility and appear keen.
It would seem Real are preparing for life without Cristiano Ronaldo, and Guillem Balague has told Talksport that a “strategy is in place” for Ronaldo to join PSG.
It has been rumoured for some time that the Portuguese player could leave the Bernabeu while it still makes economic sense for the Spanish giants.
Despite his current poor form Hazard is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world. Since joining Chelsea he has grown from a young player touted as having potential to arguably the best attacking midfielder in the country.
Real Madrid would be the perfect platform to continue his development. He would have to fight for his place as competition in the Real squad is fierce but it would seem he fancies his chances, especially if Ronaldo departs and leaves a massive hole.
