EPL: Real Madrid target, Hazard gives condition for signing new Chelsea deal

EPL: Real Madrid target, Hazard gives condition for signing new Chelsea deal

But the Belgian is set to use United's interest in his services as the catalyst to force Real Madrid to make their move.

Real Madrid have been struggling this season but there might finally be some good news for their fans as reports in Radio Montecarlo (via AS) claim that Los Blancos have made contact with Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard's agent to finalise a transfer as soon as possible. The shot-stopper, who has also been linked with a switch to Madrid, had previously urged his Belgium team-mate to sign on the dotted line. "And in Chelsea, people always said that I'm leaving, but I'm still here".

Hazard recently gave Chelsea fans hope he was keen on extending his stay in west London but only if Thibaut Courtois penned a new deal first.

"Yes", Hazard told Mirror Football when asked if he would sign a new Chelsea contract.

Julie claims she sent a copy of her book - which she calls an autobiography - to Buckingham Palace right after it was published. There are now about 800 royal warrant holders, including individuals, small firms and global conglomerates.

Hazard's father, Thierry, revealed in December that his son had rejected a new contract offer from the Blues, with one offer reported to be worth €17.6million (£15.5million).

After missing the start of the 2017-18 campaign after undergoing surgery over the summer, Hazard has scored nine goals and contributed eight assists as Chelsea have moved to third in the league.

"First, he must sign, then I will be able to continue. He will say "if you sign, I will sign" and I say the same to him".

Having fallen 16 points off the pace in La Liga, Real Madrid are under pressure to salvage their season and prevent it from becoming a complete disaster. "Eden is only one of the parties involved in his future", he said.
