Real Madrid has dropped their plans to sign Chelsea star Eden Hazard in January, according to report in Marca.
The Belgian attacker has been a subject of interest from Real Madrid in the past season and the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo and the inability of Los Blancos
attackers to score goals in their last four games has forced the directors to look for an option.

Hazard has just two years left in his current deal with Chelsea and he has signalled his interest in playing for the European Champions.
Real Madrid has now dropped the plans to sign Hazard during the winter transfer and prefer to wait till the end of the season when he will have just a year left in his contract.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich wants a huge fee for the attacker, Real Madrid will be glad to wait with the aim of forcing the Russian billionaire to sanction the sale of Hazard at a reduced fee- in much the same way as Thibaut Courtois was sold for just £35million in August.
