Guillem Balague tells Chelsea fans: This is the truth about Eden Hazard to Real Madrid
The Spanish football expert claims that Real Madrid are confident that Eden Hazard would want to join them from Chelsea this summer
Guillem Balague has claimed that Real Madrid are confident that Eden Hazard wants to join the Spanish club in the summer transfer window.
The Chelsea playmaker has been heavily linked with a possible transfer to Real Madrid at the end of the season amid speculation that the Spanish side have made the 26-year-old one of their top targets.
Hazard has been in fine form for Chelsea this season and has been tipped as one of the contenders to win the PFA player of the year award this term.
Spanish football expert Balague says Real Madrid are keen to sign the former Lille star and claims that the La Liga outfit are confident that he would want to join them should they come calling.
Balague told Sky Sports: “The idea of course is that yes they are interested in Hazard,.
“I’m sure he knows about it. His representatives know about it but of course Chelsea have to want to sell. That’s where the sticking point will be for Real Madrid.
“So the effort from Madrid right now is to add pressure to Hazard to make his mind up. The Spanish club feel he wants to come to them, but Real will ask him to tell Chelsea he wants to go once they have agreed personal terms.
“So we are in an early phase of the potential transfer but Real will have a plan B in case Chelsea do not want to sell.”
