Sid Lowe believes that Real Madrid are confident of being able to sign Chelsea FC duo Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois this summer.

The Spanish outfit have been strongly linked with moves for both of the Chelsea FC stars as they look to try and bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

Courtois has been touted as a target for the Spanish outfit as the Chelsea FC goalkeeper only has one year left to run on his current deal.

Hazard has also been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, despite the Belgian attacking midfielder having two years left on his contract with Chelsea FC.

Now, Spanish football expert Lowe has claimed that Real Madrid remain confident and keen on deals to try and sign the pair this summer.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Lowe said: “Real Madrid feel Hazard and Courtois are far more plausible signings than Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.”

Chelsea FC completed their first signing of the summer last weekend when they brought in midfielder Jorginho from Napoli.

The move came after the Blues moved swiftly to appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new manager following the sacking of Antonio Conte.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table and won the FA Cup last season under Conte.
