Real Madrid are preparing to make £150million transfer offer for Belgian supers Eden Hazard, according to reports.
The Blues striker is hot property this summer after a fantastic performance at World Cup tournament and just two years has been left on his deal at Stamford Bridge.
Belgium international star has shone for his country in Russia and will have the chance to showcase his skills once again in Russia as they face England for the third place.
Chelsea are desperate for Belgian superstar to sign a new long-term contract and are on the brink of appointing a manager more to the liking of the Belgian.
However, the Daily Mail claims the Los Blancos have been encouraged by Belgia superstar to bid and will make a £150m offer for his signature within weeks.
The 27-year-old forward spoke of his admiration for European champions this summer, and admitted Los Blancos were ‘a club who make you dream’.
Ronaldo’s exit will be a major blow to Real Madrid and now they are ready to splash over £150m in order to lure Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge.
Paris Saint-German and Chelsea have reportedly expressed strong interest in the signing of AC Milan centre-back Leonardo Bonucci this summer.
The Italian club are currently embroiled in an ownership dispute less than two years on from being taken over by the Chinese consortium.
As a result, former Juventus centre-back’s salary may have to be taken off the wage bill to meet the requirements of Financial Fair Play (FFP).
According to Corriere dello Sport, the Blues will face stiff competition from Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.
The report states that Italian manager Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to replace Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge, sees Italian centre-back as the defensive lynchpin to the Blues lineup.
UEFA have already fined Serie A giants and banned them from competing in Europe League for breaching the governing body’s financial regulations.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain are in the market for midfield reinforcements and have identified Chelsea star N’Golo Kante as their no.1 transfer target this summer following the Frenchman’s stunning form at both club and International level.
Newcastle United have finalised the signing of Brazilian Wideman Kenedy on loan from Chelsea.
The 22-year-old Brazilian attacker also spent the second half of last season on loan at Rafa Benitez’s team and he will now return to St James Park for a full campaign.
The Brazilian star becomes Newcastle’s third new signing this summer, following the permanent signings of Ki Sung-yueng and Martin Dubravka.
“I am so happy with this interest from Rafa Benitez, that he came back for me. I want to keep it going, the work that I did here before, for the new season,” Kenedy told the club’s official website.
“I have received many, many messages on social media from the fans. They made me feel appreciated, so I wanted to come here in this new season and give everything on the pitch.”
Manager Benitez added: “I’m really pleased to have Kenedy back with us. I’m sure every fan will be happy with this signing. Hopefully, he can keep playing at the same level that he reached with us last season. I wish him all the best for his time here.”
Kenedy has played 13 games for the Magpies last term, founding back of the net twice and winning the club’s Player of the Season award back in March.
