Ian Wright believes that Real Madrid will continue to pursue Chelsea FC winger Eden Hazard.

Chelsea are in third place in the Premier League table after picking up 16 points from a possible 18 at the start of the season.

New manager Maurizio Sarri has already implemented his own unique style on the pitch, favouring fluid, quick attacking football.

Hazard has been the main beneficiary under Sarri and is thriving so far in a more advanced role.

The Belgian has scored five goals in six games and produced some of the best football of his career, impressing experts and fans with his technical superiority and clinical edge in the final third.

Hazard couldn’t find the net in a 0-0 draw with West Ham on Sunday, which stalled Hazard and Chelsea’s momentum somewhat.

Former Arsenal legend Wright Real Madrid will not stop in their pursuit of Hazard, having been heavily linked with a move for the midfielder over the summer.

Wright told Sky Sports: “When they go for you, Real Madrid do not stop. They might have thought he hasn’t got to the level where they are seeing the consistency.”

Cristiano Ronaldo left Madrid to join Juventus in Serie A during the transfer window, which has left a galactico shape whole in the current squad at the Santiago Bernabeau.

Hazard would be the ideal replacement, however, it seems extremely unlikely that Chelsea would be willing to lose their star player without a fight.

The tricky attacker will return to action with Chelsea against Liverpool on Wednesday, in the first game of their latest Carabao Cup campaign, before also facing Jurgen Klopp’s men on Saturday in the Premier League.
