Chelsea are reportedly resisting the prospect of reducing Eden Hazard's asking price amid the reported interest from Real Madrid ahead of the summer.

The Belgium international has been reluctant to extend his contract with the Blues beyond June 2020m and this has created doubts regarding his future with the west London club.

According to The Telegraph, the Capital outfit are likely to consider the attacker's sale in the summer, should he continue with his year-long contract standoff with the club.

However, the Blues are still reluctant to budge on their £100m price tag for the former Lille man and they could be prepared to delay his potential sale until the dying stages of the summer transfer window.

Real Madrid are currently prepared to offer around £85m for the 28-year-old playmaker and talks are likely to continue with the Blues' hierarchy in the forthcoming weeks as they remain keen on pushing through an early agreement.
