FC Barcelona and Real Madrid will battle it out to sign Eden Hazard this summer, according to La Liga expert Graham Hunter.

The Chelsea FC number 10 appears to be facing an uncertain future at the west London side following his excellent display at the World Cup.

Hazard captained the Blues to the World Cup semi-finals before a 1-0 loss to eventual winners France in the last four.

The Belgium international has been regularly linked with a move to Real Madrid over the past few seasons but a deal failed to materialise.

The 27-year-old has just over 24 months left to run on his current deal to open up the possibility of a free transfer in 2020.

Hazard was unable to fire Chelsea FC to a spot in the Champions League after the Blues finished in fifth spot last term.

La Liga expert Hunter believes FC Barcelona and Real Madrid want to sign Hazard in the current transfer window.

“If Hazard were to move, there would be an outright slug fest between Spain’s two biggest clubs,” Hunter told the Transfer Talk podcast.

Chelsea FC have won the Premier League table in two of the past three seasons.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
