While Hazard’s stock in the football world is as low as it has ever been, he still has admirers at Stamford Bridge, with the whole fanbase adoring him after what he achieved in Chelsea colours.
Real Madrid appear to be keen to take advantage of that fact, with AS reporting that the club are prepared to let him return to Chelsea for a fee in the region of €60M (£51.6M).
That figure is thought to be on the high side from Chelsea’s perspective, but AS claim there are intermediaries who are actively discussing the possibility with the Blues.
