Former Real Madrid President Ramon Calderon revealed that Los Blancos are interested in signing Chelsea star Eden Hazard, and he will be their number one target next summer. He also claimed money won’t be an issue if the La Liga giants decide to sign the Belgian, and everything will hinge on player’s wishes.
“I think they are maybe looking for Hazard,” said Calderon. “People are always talking about him, but he has contract with Chelsea, and he hasn’t said anything about leaving Chelsea.
“So it is not a matter of money, as I said before many times, it is a matter of whether the player wants to leave.
“We haven’t heard anything about Hazard leaving so we will have to see at the end of the year what is happening with the players currently at Real Madrid to decide what is to be done in the next transfer window.”
It has been reported that Hazard is not happy at Stamford Bridge and is aiming for a move away from the Blues. The Belgian has suffered a massive drop in his form, and he is yet to score a goal for his club this season.
A club insider said problems started when Hazard and Jose Mourinho’s relationship broke down earlier in the season. He said: ‘In his head he has already left. It would take some U-turn to keep him.’
