Chelsea are reluctant to meet the asking price to re-sign Eden Hazard from Real Madrid, El Nacional claims.
The Belgium international has endured a tough spell with Los Blancos, and he is currently out-of-favour under manager Carlo Ancelotti.
He has been touted to return to the Premier League soon. Newcastle United recently met the €40 million price tag, only for Hazard to snub them.
The Blues have now been offered the chance to re-sign the attacker, but they are unwilling to pay more than €25m for his services.
Hence, Hazard appears likely to remain with Los Blancos until the end of the campaign before deciding the next step in his career.
Aside from the Belgian, Isco is also due to remain with the Madrid giants this term despite his contract expiring at the end of June.
There has been speculation that he could leave this month, but the Spaniard prefers to secure a free transfer with a significant signing-on fee.
