Chelsea FC will demand a world-record transfer fee of £200m to sell Eden Hazard this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Blues have set a mammoth asking price for the 27-year-old playmaker, who continues to be linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.

The same story says that Chelsea FC are convinced that Hazard is worth more than the £198m that PSG paid to sign Neymar from FC Barcelona last summer.

Hazard’s future has been a constant source of speculation this summer and he has been touted as a target for Real Madrid after Chelsea FC missed out on Champions League qualification.

However, it is being claimed in the same story that despite Real Madrid being Hazard’s favourite club, the Spanish giants are “unlikely” to meet Chelsea FC’s asking price.

Chelsea FC do not want to sell Hazard, but the same story says that there is a growing concern that the playmaker will not sign a new contract at the club, with his current deal set to expire in 2020.

It is also claimed in the same article that Hazard himself is not pushing for a move away from Chelsea FC.
