Real Madrid have upped their valuation of Eden Hazard and could still make a big-money bid to sign the playmaker from Chelsea FC this month, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Express is reporting that the Spanish club are refusing to admit defeat in their pursuit of the 27-year-old playmaker as they bid to try and lure him to the Bernabeu before the close of the transfer window in Europe at the end of the month.

Hazard’s situation at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation this summer after the Blues finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term.

According to the same story, Real Madrid remain “desperate” to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with Hazard, and they are now closer to matching Chelsea FC’s £200m valuation of the Belgian attacker.

The same article says that Hazard is stalling on signing a new £300,000 a week contract at Stamford Bridge, and his current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2020.

Meanwhile, Hazard came off the bench to notch up an assist as Chelsea FC claimed a 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town in their Premier League opener on Saturday afternoon.
