Real Madrid are quite confident they will snap up Eden Hazard this summer if they include Alvaro Morata in a swap deal worth a combined £120 million, according to latest reports.
Hazard’s entourage are fully focused on Real and the La Liga champions believe a summer deal is now a real possibility.
Morata has long been linked with Chelsea, with Antonio Conte having seen him flourish at his former club Juventus. The striker earned a move back to Spain with two successful years in Serie A and Conte is still a big fan of him.
The Bernabeu hierarchy believes that if they offer Morata in a part-swap deal plus a world-record transfer fee, they can secure the Hazard transfer.
The total package may be worth upwards of £120 million, which would eventually smash the world-record Paul Pogba fee. Pogba cost £89 million, but Hazard’s move to Real Madrid would easily surpass that figure, according to the Mirror.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are ready to hand Hazard £300,00 a week to tie him down, but even his teammates are not sure if a wage increase would be enough to keep him.
Hazard has starred for Chelsea this term, scoring 14 league goals to put them within touching distance of the Premier League title.
