Real Madrid have made Chelsea striker Eden Hazard their major transfer target in the summer.

Real Madrid have been linked with the Belgian for a long time and his move to Real Madrid maybe getting closer.

The departure of former star striker Cristiano Rondaldo created a void that was left to fill by a player of that height.

The exit of Cristiano Ronaldo further opened up the door for Hazard to move to Real Madrid.

Recently, Real Madrid ended their pursuit of Christian Erikson of Tottenham Hotspur to focus fully on Eden Hazard.

Real Madrid squad is currently under uncertainties as some first team players have been linked with potential move away from the club.

Players like Marcelo and Luka Modric have generated much more interest from the Italian Serie A with potential destinations like Juventus for Marcelo and Milan for Modric.

Real Madrid will be in the market to find possible replacements for those players that have uncertain future at the club.

Eden Hazard contract at Chelsea will come to an end in June 2020 and there have been no sign of a contract renewal from the belgian.

Although Chelsea offered a contract extension to the forward, the belgian is yet to sign an extension.

Hazard’s refusal to sign to new contract indicates that he may leave Chelsea at the end and Real Madrid is the possible destination.

If Hazard leaves Chelsea, they’ll be forced to bring an immediate replacement for him.
