Real Madrid are reportedly ready to use Eden Hazard as part of their bid to seal the transfer of Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe.
The Spanish giants may unsurprisingly feel it is not worth keeping Hazard for much longer, with the Belgium international proving a spectacular flop since his move from Chelsea last season.
According to El Chiringuito in the tweet below, Hazard may now be used as bait by Real as they try to land Mbappe from PSG…

It remains to be seen if PSG would be prepared to take Hazard after his dramatic dip in form, but the 29-year-old might benefit from moving to a less competitive league.
Even if Hazard hasn’t been at his best at the Bernabeu, he’s surely not lost all of that talent overnight, so a new club and a change of scene might be the best thing for him at the moment.
This might be bad news for Liverpool, who have also been linked with Mbappe by Le Parisien in recent times.
The France international would be a dream signing for Jurgen Klopp’s side, having shown himself to be one of the most exciting young talents in the world for the last few years.
Liverpool already have Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino up front, but Mbappe could be an ideal long-term signing to replace the trio as they approach their 30s.
