He wants out
Chelsea player Eden Hazard is reportedly stepping up his rehab in order to be fit as soon as possible, and while that would usually be seen as brilliant news for the Blues, it could end up being quite the opposite.
That’s because Diario Gol claim Hazard actually wants to join Real Madrid, and knows that being fit and ready to go for the start of the season would make him a much more attractive prospect for the La Liga side.
Real have been quiet so far in the transfer window, but it seems that the champions of Europe and Spain are ready to ramp it up, and have been linked with moves for several top players in Europe.
Landing Hazard would cost a fair bit of money, but with Gareth Bale constantly linked with leaving Real, they may raise funds through his sale, or use money they might have spent on another player that is now unobtainable – such as Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe had been linked with a £100 million move to Madrid, yet after Monaco made it clear in a strongly worded statement that they were annoyed by illegal approaches for the player, that no longer looks like being the case.
Real are thought to be one of said clubs, and after just dealing with the threat of one transfer ban, they look like being engulfed in another scandal.
