Real Madrid set to meet with Chelsea FC star’s representatives this weekend – report
Chelsea FC will hold discussions with Eden Hazard's representatives this weekend, according to a report
Real Madrid are set to hold talks with Eden Hazard’s father and lawyers about a summer move this weekend, according to a report in Italy.
Italian website Gianluca Di Marzio, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Champions League holders will hold discussions with Hazard’s representatives in Madrid.
The same article states that Real Madrid are willing to pay £112m for Hazard, unlike speculation that has suggested los Blancos would cough up a club record £170m fee.
According to the same story, the Spanish giants will look to complete deals for Hazard and his Chelsea FC team-mate Thibaut Courtois separately.
Chelsea FC have been unable to tie down Courtois and Hazard to long-term deals at the Stamford Bridge outfit despite negotiations with the duo.
Hazard has less than 24 months to run on his current deal with Chelsea FC to open up the possibility of the Belgian star leaving for nothing in 2020.
The Blues finished in fifth place in the Premier League table to miss out on a spot in the Champions League for the second time in three seasons.
Chelsea FC have appointed Maurizio Sarri as their new manager following Antonio Conte’s dismissal last week.
