The Belgian’s long-anticipated move to Real Madrid is seemingly edging closer by the day following the return of Zinedine Zidane.
The Frenchman, who was reappointed as Los Blancos chief last month, has been promised a massive overhaul of his current crop of players and has already signed Porto defender Eder Militao.
Hazard, 28, has always idolised Zidane and dreamt of a move to the Bernabeu.
The Blues winger has been stalling on signing a new contract with the west London club, with his current deal up at the end of next season – and Chelsea have reportedly placed a £100million price tag on their talisman’s head.
The Telegraph are now reporting Hazard will refuse to sign a new contract even if the west London club play hardball with the LaLiga giants to get them to pay the desired fee.
