Real Madrid have been issued a deadline of August 9th if they want to seal a move for Chelsea and Belgium star Eden Hazard.
This is according to Don Balon, who are stating that Hazard is tired of the transfer saga being dragged out like it has been, and that he wants to put an end to it as soon as possible, with it also being noted that Real are continuing to work on a move for the wide-man.
The same report also states that Hazard has set a deadline of August 9th if he is to leave Chelsea this summer, which means Los Blancos have just two weeks to thrash out a deal for the Belgian.
Hazard is, quite clearly, one of the best players in the world, and him joining Real would be a real coup for the club, whatever the price.
The winger was one of the player’s of the tournament at the World Cup this summer, with his performances for Belgium helping the Red Devils seal a third-placed finish.
Hazard’s displays for the Blues last year weren’t enough to get the club into the Champions League, as the Blues could only muster up a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League under old boss Antonio Conte.
If Real are serious about bringing in Hazard this summer, then it looks like they’ll have to get a move on if they want to bring in one of the world’s best players this summer.
