Chelsea could be forced to lower Eden Hazard price tag as European giants baulk at £80m demands

Posted by

Chelsea could be forced to lower their massive £80m asking price for Eden Hazard if they want to sell the Belgian winger this summer, according to The Express.

The Express reports that Real Madrid and Paris Saint-German are both admirers of Hazard, who has admitted his interest in a move to the French champions.

But the European giants are seemingly thinking what we are thinking – £80m for a player who has not scored in the Premier League this season? Not a chance.

Hazard has suffered an alarming dip in form this term after winning the PFA Player of the Year award in 2014-15, after inspiring Chelsea to the Premier League title.

And The Express understands that incoming Blues boss Antonio Conte has given the green light to Chelsea instructing agents to drum up interest in Hazard.

Real and PSG may have been slightly deterred from signing him after his disappointing drop off, but would still consider doing business at £60m, The Express adds.
