Real Madrid are reportedly preparing a blockbuster £150million to sign Eden Hazard.
That is according to the Daily Mail, who say Los Blancos are ready to splash the cash they pocketed from the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in order to land the Chelsea forward.
Real trousered £99million by selling Ronaldo to the Italian giants and Hazard’s stock has risen further due to his impressive performances for Belgium at the World Cup.
The 27-year-old has previously spoken of his ambition to play at the Bernabeu and Chelsea, who are poised to confirm Maurizio Sarri as Antonio Conte’s successor, do not have Champions League football next season.
