European giants keeping close tabs on £200,000-a-week Chelsea winger

Real Madrid have been linked with many players in the last few weeks and months, ahead of the summer transfer window. Moves are expected to happen, as Los Blancos officials were criticised for not signing enough footballers last summer. In particular, forward Alvaro Morata was not correctly replaced after being sold to Chelsea.

Morata’s current teammate Eden Hazard is one of the footballers that has been continually linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, and the footballer has earlier spoken of his admiration for Los Blancos.

The latest story from British outlet the Daily Mail suggests that Hazard is stalling on any contract offers from Chelsea as he wishes to force a transfer to Real Madrid in the summer. The footballer looked dejected in the loss to Manchester City at the weekend, as he didn’t appear to enjoy the defensive style of football his side was playing.

What may be necessary in signing Hazard is keeping Zinedine Zidane as manager, as the footballer is a massive fan of the famous Los Blancos coach. Of course, a footballer with the quality of Eden Hazard is likely to cost a lot of money. However, that should not be an issue for Real Madrid.

Another footballer that has been linked with a transfer to the Bernabeu this summer is Borussia Dortmund ace Christian Pulisic. A story from Diario Gol claims that a move for Pulisic could happen if Gareth Bale were to leave the club this summer.
