Eden Hazard requests permission to join Real Madrid
Eden Hazard has asked for permission to leave Chelsea to join Real Madrid to Chelsea hierarchy.
According to former FIFA accredited agent Vicent Rodriguez, the Belgian attacker is preparing for a move to Santiago Bernabeu the president of which club Florentino Perez and also manager Zinedine Zidane likes him very much.
Eden Hazard is in good form and has been the main man in Antonio Conte’s starting eleven and his wide range of talents has attracted many clubs including Real Madrid as now Zidane is also looking to boost his sides attack with the addition of Hazard.
Real already has a good front three with the likes of Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema with Morata, James, Asensio already in bench. But Real’s target man Ronaldo is showing signs of ageing and is looking to move into a more central striker mode. Eden Hazard, in that case, could easily fit into the squad as the left winger if Ronaldo moves into a central role which is most likely to happen next season.
Real president Florentino Perez has his eyes on Hazard and is ready to bid for him while Chelsea will be trying their best to keep him at Stamford Bridge. Los Blancos is also showing interest to sign Chelsea’s Thibault Courtois if they fail to sign De Gea from Manchester United. AC Milan’s Gigio Donnarumma is also in their wishlist.
“Eden Hazard has asked Chelsea to grant his wish to move to Real Madrid this summer. Chelsea looking at 3 replacements.”, Vincent Rodriguez wrote on his twitter account.
Antonio Conte has already started the search for a replacement for Hazard and Chelsea is interested in Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, who has found it difficult to feature in the first XI since joining the Madrid outfit from Monaco as a potential replacement of Di Maria. So a mutual transfer between the two European giants also does seem to be a possibility.
