Real Madrid set to make big money move for Chelsea £200,000 a-week star

La Liga giants Real Madrid have reportedly decided to up their interest in the signing of Chelsea forward Eden Hazard.

The Spanish giants have long been rumoured with securing the services of Belgium international, who has just over 12 months left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge.

However, according to The Telegraph, the return of Zidane in charge of Real Madrid has coincided with the Los Blancos opting to make their first official approach for their long-term target.

Belgian superstar is a long-standing admirer of Zinedine Zidane, and the report claimed that the Frenchman’s second spell at Santiago Bernabeu is likely to increase the chances of a summer deal being reached.

The Blues are believed to value Belgian superstar at £100m, however, the Los Blancos may attempt to negotiate a lower fee given Stamford Bridge giants need to sell the player if they cannot tempt the forward to sign a new deal.

Meanwhile, France international midfielder N’Golo Kante is Zinedine Zidane’s no.1 transfer this summer after the Frenchman has made a return to Real Madrid.

Zidane stepped down from his role as the Los Blancos head-coach 10 months ago after guiding the club to three successive games in the Champions League, however, returns to replace Santiago Solari who has spent around five months in charge of the Spanish giants.

And after signing a deal confirming his re-appointment at Santiago Bernabeu, Zidane has made Chelsea anchorman, N’Golo Kante as his first transfer target as he looks to rebuild his team, according to La Gazetta dello Sport journalist Nicolò Schira.

Barcelona set to hijack Chelsea move for €25m-rated South American forward

La Liga giants Barcelona could hijack Chelsea move for Uruguayan forward Maxi Gomez in a cut-price deal this summer.

The West London club had been rumoured with a swoop for the South American forward in the summer transfer window.

However, they will be unable to finalise contracts in the summer and next January as a consequence of FIFA’s decision to reward them with a transfer ban. Chelsea attempted to freeze this, enabling them to land players for the next season, however, they have rejected the appeal.

This appears to have left from La Liga giants Barcelona with a clear run at signing Celta Vigo forward Maxi Gomez from Spanish club this summer, and it seems they could do so for half of his current release clause.

Spanish news outlet Diario Sport claimed that the Celta Vigo forward will be available as little as €25 million this summer instead of the fixed price of €50m.

The Spanish club are currently in a precarious position and sit in 18th place in the La Liga table If they fail to secure a place in the Spanish top-tier ahead of next campaign, potential suitors such as Barca could swoop to and sign Gomez for a bargain fee.

Meanwhile, France international midfielder N’Golo Kante is Zinedine Zidane’s no.1 transfer this summer after the Frenchman has made a return to Real Madrid.

Zidane stepped down from his role as the Los Blancos head-coach 10 months ago after guiding the club to three successive games in the Champions League, however, returns to replace Santiago Solari who has spent around five months in charge of the Spanish giants.
