Chelsea star Eden Hazard prefers move to Real Madrid

Chelsea FC will look to target Alisson Becker if Thibaut Courtois leaves Stamford Bridge this summer, according to a report in England.

Barcelona have reportedly been told Eden Hazard wants to leave Chelsea this summer after the Catalan giants made first contact with his representatives as they attempt to sign the Belgium global.

Hazard is yet to commit to a new deal at Chelsea, and with his current deal expiring in 2020, Barca apparently feel they have a chance of luring him to Spain.

And although Zinedine Zidane stepped down after the Champions League final, to be replaced by Julen Lopetegui, Hazard is still open to joining Madrid.

Genuine progress on a deal to sign Hazard, 27, is unlikely to occur until next week at the earliest after Belgium finish their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign-they still have a third-place play-off against England on Saturday.

It's also claimed that Hazard believes now is the right time to leave Chelsea in order to further his career and win more titles.

The Belgium global had an excellent World Cup campaign after a disappointing domestic season at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard is said to be interested in working with the Blaugrana and the club's coaching staff are already excited by the prospect. "As I've said 100 times before, I'm very happy at Chelsea".

"Zidane is someone special, it's true, but I think Real is everyone's dream".

And Abramovich is said to be ready to sell Hazard as he is considering selling the club, although he has not yet received an offer.

'Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey [of Real] is special but the blue jersey suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay.
