Chelsea FC are keen on signing Anthony Martial from Manchester United if Eden Hazard leaves the club this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Times, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the west London side are looking into the possibility of signing the French striker from the Red Devils this summer as the uncertainty about Hazard’s future continues.

Hazard has long been linked with a transfer to Real Madrid and that speculation has heightened further this summer after the Blues missed out on a spot in next season’s Champions League.

Real Madrid are thought to be in the running to sign the 27-year-old, who has two years left to run on his current contract at Chelsea FC.

According to the same report, Chelsea FC are already preparing for the possibility of losing Hazard this summer by lining up a move for 22-year-old Manchester United striker Anthony Martial.

The same article says that Jose Mourinho is open to the prospect of selling Martial this summer following his lack of playing time in the first team at Old Trafford last season.

Chelsea FC have so far only made one signing this summer after having brought in Jorginho from Napoli last weekend.
