After being heavily linked with a move to the Spanish capital for a while now, Real Madrid are ready to go all-out this summer to bring Eden Hazard to the Santiago Bernabeu and Real president Florentino Perez is ready to splash the cash, Tribal Football claims.
Following a few windows where Real Madrid have been reluctant to invest heavily in the transfer market, Los Blancos are planning for a busy summer as they eye long-term replacements for the ageing members of their superstar cast- including Cristiano Ronaldo, who turned 32 this month.
Eden Hazard can be seen as the ideal long-term replacement to the serial Ballon D’Or winner and an arrival this summer could result in a devastating attack for Los Blancos that consists of the Belgian ace, Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
In order to appease Chelsea into a deal, Real Madrid are reportedly ready to offer Alvaro Morata in a part-exchange deal.
The Spanish striker was brought back to the Santiago Bernabeu last summer after Zinedine Zidane’s side activated a buy-back clause in the player’s contract with Juventus but Morata has struggled for first-team football, making just seven starts in La Liga.
Morata was a target for Chelsea prior to his return to Real Madrid and the Blues could consider a move this summer- especially if Diego Costa is offloaded from Stamford Bridge, as has been reported during the past two transfer windows.
The problem for Chelsea is that Morata wouldn’t fill the void in the side that they’d be searching for if Hazard was to go but it could still be a beneficial move.
