According to a new report in Marca, Real Madrid were encouraged to make a move for Chelsea and Belgium star Eden Hazard a month ago. Hazard’s father and representative, Thierry, suggested the Spanish giants make a move for his son and client on the eve of the UEFA Champions League final versus Liverpool.
Reports indicate that the holders of the past three consecutive European titles might have to pay up to €120m in order to acquire the forward and 2015 PFA Player of the Year.
Six days ago, Hazard put Stamford Bridge on notice, telling the world what he demands of his current club- clarity about the manager situation, and following that, a clue as to what the roster will look like. In the same interview, he also gave a very strong signal to Real.
“Real Madrid could interest me, everyone knows that, but if tomorrow that club doesn’t want me anymore, we won’t talk about it again. If they want to buy me, they know what they have to do,” Eden Hazard added.
“Going there for going there’s sake, no. There has to be a project. I still have a project with Chelsea. If I have a good World Cup, things will be easier.”
However, talks for a new deal at Chelsea have still stalled out, and Hazard the elder has made that into a green light for Madrid.
