Sid Lowe: Real Madrid are confident of signing Chelsea FC star

Real Madrid are confident of being able to sign Eden Hazard from Chelsea FC this summer, according to Sid Lowe.
The Belgian playmaker’s future at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation this summer after the attacker hinted that he would be open to a move away from Chelsea FC ahead of next season.
The 27-year-old is widely considered to be one of the top attacking talents in European football and he has long been touted as a possible target for Real Madrid.
That speculation has heightened this summer after Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table and ended up missing out on Champions League qualification.
It remains to be seen whether Hazard will stay and work under new manager Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge or seek a move away from the club this summer.
But Spanish football expert Lowe seems to think that the attacking midfielder could well be on his way out of Chelsea FC to join Real Madrid this summer.
Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Lowe said: “Hazard has always played a double game to put pressure on Chelsea to improve the team and let it be known that he would be very tempted to move to Madrid and Spain.
“Madrid believe it would be a plausible signing.”
Chelsea FC are currently getting used to life under new boss Sarri after his appointment last weekend.
