Real Madrid are set to offer Chelsea two players in exchange for Eden Hazard according to reports in Spain.
The reigning European champions have a long-standing interest in signing the Chelsea attacker, who yesterday took his tally of goals for the West London club to 101 after scoring a brace against Watford.
While the Belgian has always maintained that he is happy at Stamford Bridge, he has also constantly said that a move to the Spanish capital is his ‘dream’.
Hazard has already confirmed that he would not leave Chelsea in the upcoming January transfer window, but reports in Onda Cero claim that Real Madrid will offer two players to the Blues in order to secure Hazard’s signature.
Chelsea already have Croatia international Mateo Kovacic on loan from Los Blancos, and have recently been linked with making a £70m move for their out-of-favour playmaker Isco.
The report claims that Real Madrid will allow the Premier League side to have Kovacic and Isco in exchange for Hazard.
The 27-year-old will have just 12 months remaining on his contract in the summer, meaning Chelsea could be willing to cash in on their prized asset while he still has some transfer value as opposed to losing him for free in 2020.
Hazard’s brace against Watford on Boxing Day means that he has been involved in more goals than any other player this season in the EPL, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists.
