Real Madrid are in “advanced” negotiations to sign Eden Hazard from Chelsea next summer, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Diario Gol, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that the Spanish giants have already opened talks with Chelsea and are getting closer to agreeing a deal to land the 26-year-old attacker.
The same report claims that Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is a keen admirer of the Belgium international and has instructed president Florentino Perez to do what he can to try and bring him to the Bernabeu.
Hazard has been in superb form for Chelsea so far this season, with the Belgian playmaker having scored eight goals and made four assists in all competitions for the Blues.
He missed the start of the season as he recovered from a serious ankle injury but now seems to be rediscovering his top form for the west London side.
The same story claims that Hazard’s potential arrival at Real Madrid could spark doubt about the future of Marco Asensio, who has reportedly told his club that he will seek an exit if they do indeed complete the signing of the Chelsea star.
Hazard will be expecting to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Bournemouth in the League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday night.
