The Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to keep hold of star man Eden Hazard for the long term future.
However, recent reports suggest that Chelsea are facing a battle to keep Eden Hazard.
According to an exclusive report by The Express, Eden Hazard is Zinedine Zidane’s number one target as he looks to bolster his Real Madrid squad.
The Spanish giants are hoping to tempt Hazard away from Stamford Bridge with a new challenge in La Liga.
Chelsea have been trying to convince the attacking midfielder to sign a new contract.
But discussions over a possible new £300,000 per week deal are stalling and the longer the negotiations go on without an agreement, the more doubt surrounds Hazard’s future.
Real Madrid are looking to improve their options in their squad and the Belgium international is seen as an ideal man to come in.
Chelsea star Hazard has recently admitted that he is focused on his project at Stamford Bridge but conceded that he would like to play under Zinedine Zidane one day.
This has handed Real Madrid encouragement and they will make him their priority in the next window.
Eden Hazard and Chelsea could face some big decisions if Real Madrid firm up their interest with a bid.
