Real Madrid have made up their final shopping list and it has the name of both Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois – according to Sky Sports expert Guillem Balague.

The Los Blancos’ interest in the Chelsea duo is no hidden secret and as per Balague Florentino Perez is going to come after them very aggressively.

“Real Madrid need big names and they have lined up Courtois, they want Hazard,” Balague told Sky Sports.

“Those are the kind of names they want for next season. Doesn’t mean they will get them, but that’s the shopping list they have.

“It’s becoming clearer in the minds of the directors of Real Madrid they need another striker, that Karim Benzema has to be sold.

“He doesn’t even have the backing of the fans.

“Real Madrid will always do their plan of getting a Galactico every year or couple of years.

“And they realise their front men are getting older, it’s more difficult for them to score.”

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is preparing for a major overhaul at the club and he is ready to offload players like Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. Real are close to signing Kepa Arrizabalaga but multiple reports suggest that the current Bilbao man is just a short-term solution to the goalkeeping woes.
