Hazard ‘offered to Real Madrid’

Representatives of Chelsea star Eden Hazard have ‘offered’ the player to Real Madrid this summer, say reports in Spain.

Marca say Thierry Hazard – Eden’s father – contacted Los Blancos in the immediate aftermath of the Champions League final victory to notify them of the player’s availability.

The Belgian international has previously stated his future at Stamford Bridge depends on ‘if the Coach (Antonio Conte) continues or not’ to cast further doubt on a potential move away this summer.

The 27-year-old will not be in the Champions League next season after the Blues finished fifth last season, in a meek defence of their Premier League title.

“If Real Madrid want me they already know what they have to do,” Hazard is cited as saying by Marca.

“Do they interest me? Yes, maybe.

“If I stay at Chelsea, then the team have to do better than they did last season but in London I have won everything and where I am at this point of my career is thanks to Chelsea.

“To say 'I'm leaving' would be too easy, so first I want to see what will happen at Chelsea next season, I want to see if the Coach continues or not.”
