Last week Eden Hazard’s dad gave an interview stating that the Belgian International has refused a contract extension at Chelsea and is waiting to hear from Real Madrid. And keeping in line with this news, The Sun are now claiming that Florentino Perez is readying a bid for the Chelsea playmaker.
Hazard’s current contract at Chelsea expires in 2020 and his refusal to put to paper on an extension has put the Stamford Bridge outfit under a fair bit of pressure. As per reports, Chelsea were willing to offer Eden Hazard £300,000-per-week in the form of wages but the Belgian winger seems to have his heart set on Real Madrid.
Real boss Zinedine Zidane has marked out Hazard as one of his top transfer targets and the Los Blancos will be trying to bring him in during the January transfer window itself.
Even though the above-mentioned move looks very unlikely as Antonio Conte will definitely not want to sell his star player during the middle of such a crucial campaign. But putting in a bid this month will certainly make the Blues feel the heat.
