Two of Real Madrid’s star players have threatened to leave the club if Chelsea winger Eden Hazard is signed during the summer.
Eden Hazard delivered another masterclass with Chelsea against West Ham on Monday evening as he lead the Blues to three points with his brace. However, it does not seem like the Belgium international will be wearing the west Londoner’s kit next season as he potentially eyes a switch to Real Madrid during the summer.
Florentino Perez has already managed to agree terms in personal with Eden Hazard and his representatives. The next thing which Los Blancos have to do is agree upon a transfer fee with Chelsea. It has been claimed that Real Madrid have offered 80 million pounds to Chelsea, who are now asking for 100 million pounds. That agreement is close nonetheless.
Eden Hazard’s arrival is definitely going to add a lot of positives to the Santiago Bernabeu based side, but there are going to be a few negatives regarding his signing as well which will possibly see two of their most highly rated gems depart the club- Marco Asensio and Mateo Kovacic– who are wanted players in the transfer market.
Marco Asensio is extremely sought after in Real Madrid, but he does feel like his time at Madrid is coming to an end if the club signs Eden Hazard and follows him up with Neymar or Kylian Mbappe. He has been valued at 150 million euros and has the interest of Liverpool and Bayern Munich benefitting him.
Mateo Kovacic is already on loan at Chelsea. Maurizio Sarri has suggested that the Blues want to make his deal a permanent one this summer but sanctions from FIFA might prohibit them from doing so. The Croatia international has been valued at 40 million euros and Juventus, as well as Inter Milan, have been credited with interest in purchasing him.
Should Real Madrid allow Asensio and Kovacic to leave if they are earning 200 million euros?
