Eden Hazard has told Barcelona that he is ready to quit Chelsea and snub Real Madrid in favour of a move to Camp Nou, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Don Balon, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that Hazard has informed the La Liga giants that he is prepared to call time on his spell at the Premier League champions to move to Barcelona.

The same article states that Hazard has run out of patience with Champions League holders Real Madrid after being regularly linked with a move to los Blancos since winning his first Premier League title at Chelsea.

Indeed, Monaco teenager Kylian Mbappe is thought to have hoisted himself above Hazard in Real Madrid’s transfer wishlist as Zinedine Zidane looks to bring his compatriot to The Bernabeu.

The Spanish media outlet claims that Barcelona are ready to spend some of the £198m raised from Neymar’s sale on the Chelsea number 10 as Ernesto Valverde looks to fill the Brazil international’s void in his team.

According to Don Balon, Barcelona won’t hesitate to meet Chelsea’s asking price following Neymar’s world-record move.

There is hope for Chelsea supporters as the article reveals that the Catalan side are also looking at the possibility of signing Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho and PSG winger Angel di Maria as Neymar’s replacement.
