Chelsea has slashed Eden Hazard asking price in a bid to avoid losing the Belgian star for free at the end of the coming season.

The decision has put Real Madrid on alert as the European Champion is keen to do business if the valuation is right. Hazard has just less than 18 months on his deal with Chelsea and he has refused to sign an extension with the Premier League outfit.

Real Madrid is his next likely destination and the Spanish giants aim to rebuild their team after the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo.
