Zidane to offer Morata plus cash for Chelsea's Hazard

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is reportedly willing to offer Alvaro Morata plus cash for the signature of Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Frenchman has made Hazard his top summer transfer target, ahead of Juventus' Paulo Dybala. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez had been set to make Juventus‘ Paulo Dybala this summer’s ‘Galactico’ signing.

The club have even reportedly convinced the Argentine to sign a clause in his impending new Juve deal allowing him to leave when Los Blancos make an offer.

But Zidane has apparently told Perez that he would rather sign Hazard, and the Bernabeu supremo is willing to consider his demands.

Hazard is not believed to be interested in leaving Chelsea, and won’t force a move, but he would be willing to go if the club choose to sell him.

In an attempt to try to force Antonio Conte’s hand, Real Madrid are willing to give him the opportunity to unite the Spain partnership of Diego Costa and Morata at club level. The Blues have reportedly already tabled a £34m bid for Morata, but Los Blancos had been demanding at least £50m.

It is also believed that Chelsea could be given the option of signing either Isco or James Rodriguez as part of the deal.
