Hazard wants Real move

Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard is said to be focused on joining Real Madrid when the transfer window reopens in less than three months' time.' 

The 28-year-old has been a crucial performer for the Blues in the past six-and-a-half years but his long-term future remains a concern with his contract expiring at the end of next season.

According to AS, the Belgium international is tempted by the prospect of joining Los Blancos in the summer with Zinedine Zidane having returned to the helm of things.

It is added that the Blues are likely to consider the attacker's sale and a fee between £86m and £103m could be sufficient to lure the attacker to the Bernabeu this summer.

Hazard, who has been with the Blues since the summer of 2012, has managed 105 goals and 86 assists in 339 appearances for Chelsea across all competitions.

He has previously refused to rule out a new deal with the Blues, but the prospect of him signing an extension appears unlikely with the club struggling to challenge for the league title of late.
