Real Madrid readying a £70million bid for Chelsea star Eden Hazard, according to The Sun.
Los Blancos have been linked with a move for the 28-year-old, whose contract expires in June 2020, over the past couple of transfer windows.
Now it's reported that they will show their intent to bring the Belgian to the Bernabeu this summer by lodging an opening offer.
It's expected that Chelsea, who are not allowed to sign players until the summer of 2020 due to a FIFA ban, will reject the offer as they desperately try and keep hold of their biggest asset.
The Spanish giants reappointed Zinedine Zidane as boss earlier this week and they are now planning to bring in reinforcements in order to compete with Barcelona once again.
Hazard moved to Stamford Bridge from Lille in 2012 for around £32million and he has helped the club win five trophies, including two Premier League titles.
