Hazard makes decision on Chelsea future

Sarri recently revealed he is not expecting a decision from Hazard over whether to extend his contract or seek a move away until the summer.

And with no apparent progress in contract talks between the Belgium global and the Premier League club, who are offering him €15.6m a year, speculation is rife that this could well mean he is heading to the Bernabéu at the end of the season. Reportedly, their number one target remains Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain, who will probably come at another world record fee.

Chelsea could turn to Everton winger Richarlison in the summer should Eden Hazard leave the club in order to join Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mail.

The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo has left Real Madrid shortchanged in terms of attacking options.

Of course, Real Madrid has always been interested in Hazard. That said, it's no surprise that Real Madrid favour a move for the Brazilian.

While PSG believe it will be tough to take Kante from Chelsea, they are convinced it is not impossible and a deal could be done.

Hazard this week claimed he to have made a decision over his future, although did not go as far as to say that that decision was. The manager, Maurizio Sarri, said in December that it was "time to decide" the issue but also accepts that his star player should leave if that is his wish.

Nobody wants to accept the reality that Eden Hazard wants to sign for Real Madrid, but that's just how it is.
