Rumours in recent weeks have suggested that the Portuguese superstar may not be as content as he once was at the Bernabeu, with the player himself having been critical of Los Blancos’ decision to sell Angel di Maria.
This, allied with Ronaldo opening the door for a stunning return to Manchester United in the future, has prompted talk that he could be sold next year, with a number of clubs, including the Red Devils, likely to be interested in the winger.
And should Real cash in on the 2013 Ballon d’Or winner Hazard is the man they want to replace him.
The Belgian attacker has been a big hit at Chelsea since his 2012 switch from Lille, averaging almost a goal every three games from, mainly, a wide position.
Real are thought to have the 23-year-old at the very top of their list of replacements for Ronaldo, although it’s understood that keeping CR7 is their ultimate desire.
Chelsea are likely to demand well over £50m for their man after watching Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez move to La Liga for deals worth £86 and £75m respectively.
