Chelsea have reduced Eden Hazard Transfer Fee (asking price), according to the Mirror.
Maurizio Sarri's side had a dramatic match with Slavia Prague on Thursday but prevailed 4-3 to make it through to the Europa League semi-final 5-3 on aggregate and now attention returns to the Premier League and the hope for a place in the top four.
The Blues have accepted that Hazard is set to leave Stamford Bridge and they are looking for £90m with Lille’s Nicolas Pepe the ideal replacement.
According to Spanish publication AS, Real Madrid have opened talks with Chelsea about the Belgian as Pepe emerges as the key target.
The 23-year-old has starred for the French side this season but the Ivory Coast ace has informed Lille he wants to leave and a £70m price tag has been placed on his head.
Of course, any more would rely on Chelsea successfully appealing their transfer ban or delaying the punishment in time for the summer.
Chelsea are behind in that race at the moment as they sit in fifth having played a game more than Arsenal who lie fourth on the same number of points.
