The La Liga giants have been tipped to move for the Belgian international in the summer, with reports suggesting that they will look to sign the winger should they allow Gareth Bale to depart the Santiago Bernabeu and coach Zinedine Zidane has already expressed his admiration for the Blues star.
Understandably Mourinho is determined to keep hold of the 24-year-old but interestingly he hasn’t ruled out the idea of doing business with his old side, however, he has warned any potential deal would cost fortune:
“£100m each leg, because he’s very young – £100m each leg.” he told reporters ahead of his sides clash with Arsenal on Sunday afternoon (via The Independent)
The Blues number 10 is the hot favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year on Sunday after a wonderful season with the Stamford Bridge outfit.
His 13 league goals have seen the side open up a ten point lead at the top of the table and they are two victories away from being crowned Premier League champions, which would be Hazard’s first since his arrival in the summer of 2012.
