Real Madrid is ready to go the distance in their pursuit of Chelsea’s Belgian ace, Eden Hazard. According to reports from Madrid, the Los Merengues are set to make Hazard the world’s most expensive player if that is what it would take for them to land him.
Manchester United’s David De Gea remains a top target for Real Madrid, but Zinedine Zidane wants Eden Hazard to play behind his attackers in his preferred formation.
Talks with Hazard’s representatives have been ongoing and per the source, they have been very positive and detailed. The two camps have been discussing issues like formation and where hazard would fit in, as he does not want to go to Madrid and be lost.
Chelsea are doing their best to keep hold of Hazard, and the Belgian has publicly reiterated his desire to remain at Stamford Bridge, however, those close to him believe that he would not resist the opportunity to play for Zinedine Zidane whom he regards as a footballing idol.
Chelsea is preparing to match whatever wage Real Madrid offer him, and hope he would ignore their interest and sign on.
