Real Madrid won’t meet Chelsea’s £100m asking price for Eden Hazard… but will ask him to force dream move
- European giants Real Madrid are in hot pursuit of Chelsea star Eden Hazard
- Madrid want the Belgian star to fill the void left by club legend Cristiano Ronaldo
- Hazard has netted 17 times and created 12 assists in all competitions this season
- Zinedine Zidane has been eyeing up a move for the tricky winger for years now
The European giants have been in hot pursuit of the Belgian star for years now and feel this summer they can finally get their man to fill the void left by club legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
However, Madrid are adamant they will not pay what Chelsea want and if Blues director of football Marina Granovskaia won’t budge on the asking price, then they will get Hazard to push for the transfer.

If Granovskaia stands firm, then Madrid want Hazard to make his dreams of playing at the Bernabeu public to hurry up the move.
However, all parties involved believe the deal will go through this summer and Hazard will finally become a Galactico.
The 28-year-old has shone once again this season and has been one of the stand-out players in the Premier League, netting 14 goals and providing 12 assists for his team-mates.

The Blues hope that if they do sell Hazard it will encourage 18-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi to sign a new deal, as his path to regular first-team football will be clearer.
Hudson-Odoi also has a year left on his deal and will attract bids from Manchester United and Bayern Munich this summer.
However, the Stamford Bridge outfit will not allow both players to leave with a transfer ban looming.
