Real Madrid are readying a £150 million move for Eden Hazard as they commence a worried attempt to replace Cristiano Ronaldo following his move to Juventus which was confirmed this week, the Mail reports.
Los Blancos appear to have identified the Belgian as the major person to replace Ronaldo, though it is to be expected that the strategy will involve acquiring some top-notch players to fill the void.
The shakiness at Stamford Bridge appears to have made Hazard hesitant to sign the new contract on the table, worth £300,000 per week, and with two years remaining on his current contact Real are ready to make their move.
Having impressed in Russia for Belgium as one of the players of the competition, the Chelsea man has emerged as one of the more obvious players to lead a new generation of galacticos at the Bernabeu.
Though a hard line transfer strategy following the sacking of Antonio Conte and the expected hiring of Maurizio Sarri possibly will persuade Hazard to stay as the focal point of the side, rather than become just one star among many.
