Chelsea admit Real target could move on

Chelsea
Chelsea star Eden Hazard has played down reports he has already agreed to join Real Madrid this summer.

Real Madrid’s chances of signing Eden Hazard have been boosted after Chelsea revealed they could struggle to keep hold.

 

Real boss Zinedine Zidane is a huge admirer and looks sure to make an attempt to sign Hazard in the summer as he overhauls his squad at the Bernabeu.

His chances of striking a deal have been given as lift after Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admitted it will be very difficult to keep hold of Hazard if the player has set his heart on joining Los Blancos.

Hazard was the star of the show as he grabbed both goals in Monday night’s 2-0 win over West Ham United, but speaking afterwards Sarri revealed his concern over whether Chelsea would be able to keep him.

Real could be willing to pay £100million, while Hazard himself has often spoken of his desire to play under Zidane.

‘If Eden wants another experience it’s very difficult to keep him,’ Sarri told Sky Sports.

‘Eden played a wonderful match.

When he is able to play like this we are lucky because it is easy to win.

‘£100m is too cheap in this market – we have seen in the last windows every price.

The club agrees with me [about wanting to keep Hazard].

‘We are trying to improve.

We are trying to become one of the best teams in England and, as a consequence, in Europe – but I think I have to respect his decision.’
