There has been some fresh reports claiming Real Madrid could tempt the blues into selling with a cash-plus-player bid for Chelsea star Eden Hazard this summer.
Although the young man is loved at Chelsea, there is some suggestion that the Belgian winger could be available in the upcoming transfer window.
And the Spanish giants believe they have now been boosted in their pursuit of the 23-year-old, who has been in sparkling form in the Premier League this season.
The SportsDirectNews website claim they will offer a bundle of cash plus Raphael Varane, who has been linked with a move to London all season.
However, the blues will not sell one of their best players unless Madrid offer a more attacking player.
