Real Madrid have shocked punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern after Metro claim they are after two of Chelsea’s top stars.
The La Liga side are reportedly ready to rival Paris Saint-Germain for Eden Hazard and Oscar – meaning that Chelsea will face an even tougher fight to hold on to their star duo.
As one of our punters notes, there have been constant links with PSG when it comes to the duo and Hazard in particular, and we had even been gossiping about the fact that manager Jose Mourinho may well need to sell one of the two in order to finance a move for Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa.
Real have of course spent big in the last few summers, and could yet enjoy the greatest season in the history of the club, potentially winning the treble.
They could also of course end up with nothing. Should that happen, big cash will again be spent and it seems that the Chelsea duo are at the top of their list.
Our punters note that Jose Mourinho knows Real Madrid well – and having left the Bernabeu for Chelsea, he is hardly likely to sell his star players to the club! Unless Cristiano Ronaldo comes in part exchange of course!
Do Real Madrid have any realistic chance of luring Hazard and Oscar to the Bernabeu this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
