Chelsea ‘Re-Open Talks With Hazard’ To Fend Off Real Madrid Who Put Him Top Of Transfer Wish List

Chelsea are set to “re-open talks with Eden Hazard’s representatives” as Real Madrid put him top of their transfer wish list, according to reports.

The Belgian has always been a long-term target for the Spanish giants who are looking to spend big this summer after a poor domestic campaign.

The winger, 27, has just 18 months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge and admitted in December that contract talks had been put on hold.

Hazard was then reinstalled at the top of Real Madrid’s shopping list after cooling their interest in Neymar and Kylian Mbappe with the Belgian fuelling reports. 

Chelsea have now responded by holding discussions with Hazard’s representatives about his penning an extension on his current contract, according to Le10 Sport.

The Blues have maintained hope all season Hazard would stay at Stamford Bridge but so far, an offer worth more than £300,000-a-week has not tempted the forward.

In an interview with RMC Sport, the Blues star confirmed he will remain in West London until the end of the season but after that, things are unclear.

Hazard said: “As I said, I’m already finishing this year with Chelsea, I still have a year of contract after this year, we’ll see.

“There was a bit of talk [with Chelsea about a new contract] but then it stopped, now we’re waiting.

“Me, you know me, I’ve always loved Real, even before [Zinedine] Zidane, we’ll see what happens.”
