Chelsea FC are braced for a new offer from Real Madrid to sign Eden Hazard this summer, according to a report in Italy
Chelsea FC are anticipating a fresh bid from Real Madrid for Eden Hazard, according to a report in Italy.
Italian website Calcio Mercato, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that the Blues have already turned down a £107m offer for the Belgium international from the Champions League winners.
The same article states that los Blancos are set to come in with an improved offer for the 27-year-old Premier League star.
According to the same story, Chelsea FC are braced for the La Liga giants to test their resolve to keep Hazard at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard has hinted at a potential move to Real Madrid this summer despite the departure of his childhood hero Zinedine Zidane.
Real Madrid’s bitter rivals FC Barcelona have also been linked with a swoop to sign the 2015 PFA player of the year.
According to reports in Spain, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are keen to add Hazard to the team to improve their options on the right wing.
Chelsea FC appointed Maurizio Sarri as their new manager last weekend following Antonio Conte’s sacking.
The Blues have only signed Italy international Jorginho in a £57m deal from Serie A runners up Napoli in the summer transfer window so far.
