CHELSEA star Eden Hazard has reportedly asked Chelsea to let him join Real Madrid this summer.
Eden Hazard has been one of the standout performers for the Blues this season and his displays have led to Madrid showing interest.
Madrid chief Florentino Perez is eager to splash the cash this summer and provide Zinedine Zidane with a marquee signing.
Chelsea are determined to keep hold of the attacker but former Fifa accredited agent Vicent Rodriguez claims Hazard is reluctant to stay in west London.
The football insider tweeted: “Eden Hazard has asked Chelsea to grant his wish to move to Real Madrid this summer. Chelsea looking at 3 replacements.”
Despite the three replacements not being mentioned, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is thought to be preparing to bring in a host of fresh talent in the transfer window.
Express Sport understand Alvaro Morata is firmly in Conte’s sights and that a move would likely seal the exit of Diego Costa.
Everton star Romelu Lukaku is also on Conte’s radar as he looks to build a squad capable of challenging across all competitions, ahead of their return to the Champions League next season.
