Real Madrid star set to block transfer of 27-year-old Chelsea attacker

February 25, 2018

Eden Hazard is desired by Real Madrid after his remarkable appearances in this season’s Premier League.

The Belgian star has found the back of the net 15 times and provided ten assists in all competitions.

Diario Gol states that Asensio has issued Los Blancos with an ultimatum regarding the Belgium star.

The 22-year-old has allegedly told Florentino Perez he would depart from the Santiago Bernabeu if the Chelsea star joins this summer.

Zinedine Zidane’s side are third in the La Liga standings, 14 points behind arch-rivals Barcelona who are currently leading.

With Gareth Bale set to leave the club and Karim Benzema’s future still uncertain, Real Madrid are set to reinforce their squad in the upcoming transfer market.

Hazard is the player they have continuously been linked with in recent weeks and months.

The Belgian’s father has told the Le Soir: ‘What I can say about Eden is that he refused an extension of the contract to be able, if needed, to follow the interest of the Real, where he would see himself well.’

‘But, as I’m talking to you, there is no touch. Eden is only one of the parties to the contract.’
