Los Blancos held negotiations with £200,000-a-week Blues attacker
Los Blancos held negotiations with Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard and planning to make a bid in June when the transfer window opens again. The Spanish club have problems in the front-line as Gareth Bale linked with several clubs and his replacement is necessary.
Belgium international is the best option in this situation as he has an impressive campaign and proves his greatness one more time. Zinedine Zidane set to spend big money on the player during the summer transfer window. The 27-year-old attacker joined the London club from Lille in 2012 with a £32m deal.
He became a real leader of the club and scored many incredible goals since joining. In this season, Belgian superstar already played 51 matches, scored 20 goals and made 16 assists in all tournament. It is a fantastic consequence, and he can do much more during this campaign.
Eden has contracted with the Blues until 2020, and his release clause is nearly £150m. His price could increase during this summer and become much more. Hazard regularly plays in the national team and also helped them to finish the 2018 World Cup in a third place which is already a significant achievement for the player.
Los Blancos had terrible results in this season as they finished the La Liga in a third place and kicked out from the Champions League and Copa del Rey.
Spanish club added several footballers last summer like Mariano Diaz from Lyon, Andrii Lunin from Zorya Luhansk, Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea, Vinicius Junior from Flamengo and Alvaro Odriozola from Real Sociedad. Real Madrid also signed Porto defender Eder Militao and Man City starlet Brahim Diaz this winter.
