Two in, three out: Real Madrid aim to sign Hazard & Neymar to replace Chelsea & Man United-linked stars

Posted by

Real Madrid could reportedly embark on a big summer transfer window clear-out ahead of next season, which potentially looks like good news for the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United.

That said, it’s not all great news for Chelsea as Don Balon claim Eden Hazard is one of the Spanish giants’ priority targets in attack, alongside Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar.

Those two would undoubtedly be great up front together for Madrid, though they’ll also surely be very expensive.

It makes sense, therefore, that Don Balon are claiming Real seem prepared to sell a number of big names this summer, with their report mentioning Isco, Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio as among those who could be offloaded.

Another Don Balon report recently linked Isco with Chelsea, so that could help the west Londoners ease the pain of losing Hazard to Madrid.

The Spain international, despite his struggles at the Bernabeu, is another top creative player who could fill a variety of roles in this Chelsea side.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale is mentioned as another player who could be on his way out, according to Don Balon.

And this follows another recent Don Balon piece that claimed Manchester United were among the clubs trying to sign the Welsh winger.

Those who saw Bale in his time at Tottenham would surely welcome him back to the Premier League, with the Red Devils in need of a player like that as an upgrade on the off-form Alexis Sanchez.

Another option for them could also be Marco Asensio, as Don Balon list him as a player who could be let go by Real.

Don Balon also recently claimed Man Utd were leading the chase for the Spaniard, who has long been regarded as a big prospect even if he’s lost his way slightly this season.

Like Bale, Asensio could be a fine option for MUFC to replace the struggling Sanchez.
