- Real Madrid are confident of signing Eden Hazard this summer
- Chelsea want to sign Anthony martial as Eden Hazard’s replacement
In today’s latest Chelsea transfer news, Manchester United sensation Anthony Martial could be heading to Chelsea as Eden Hazard’s replacement if the Belgian decides to join Real Madrid this summer, reports The Times. Duncan Castles wrote in his latest transfer news blog claiming that Chelsea have approached Martial’s entourage and have advised his agent to not renew any deal with Manchester United.
Mourinho ready to sell Martial
According to The Times, Martial’s current Man United expires in 2020 and there have been talks to renew that deal but with Chelsea lurking to sign the French winger, Martial’s camp have stalled over the new contract offer made by Manchester United. As per the reports, Man United manager Jose Mourinho is ready to sell Martial if a sizeable offer comes and would want to sign an out-and-out winger.
Mourinho does not think Martial has the ability to play in multiple positions and is keen on signing Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic after the Croatian star enjoyed a sensational FIFA World Cup 2018. Manchester United value Martial at £89.3million which no club is willing to pay at this moment.
Real Madrid to offer €125million for Eden Hazard
According to The Times, Real Madrid are confident of signing Hazard this summer after their initial €125million bid for the Belgian winger. Hazard is most likely to be given the number 7 jersey vacated by Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus. Real Madrid are not confident of signing Neymar or Kylian Mbappe thus Eden Hazard is their most realistic option to replace Ronaldo who joined Juventus in a reported £105million deal.
Real Madrid are also working on a deal to sign Thibaut Courtois and Robert Lewandowski this summer. Another name linked with a move to Bernabeu has been Tottenham Hotspur’s Kieran Trippier who also had a great World Cup 2018.
Real Madrid see Trippier as the ideal man to surpass Dani Carvajal as their number one right-back choice. However, at this time, Real Madrid are more focused on signing Eden Hazard before August 9 which will then given Chelsea enough time to sign an able replacement. New manager Maurizio Sarri wants Jose Callejon and Nabil Fekir to join Chelsea if Hazard or Willian end up leaving the club this summer.
