Real Madrid are exploring attacking options this January transfer window and have zeroed in on one of the most talented youngster, Eden Hazard.
The La Liga giants will offer an astonishing amount of money to Chelsea for the Belgian’s services and are also open to the prospect of including Argentine international Angel Di Maria in a cash-plus-player deal, according to Daily Star.
Real Madrid sporting director, Zinedine Zidane, is keen to bring Hazard to Santiago Bernabeu and advised the club to push for a possible transfer, according to reports in Spain.
Angel Di Maria has had limited opportunities under Carlo Ancelotti, the majority of which have come in Champions League, but with options like Gareth Bale and Isco available at the club, he faces a real battle.
Eden Hazard has been in tremendous form of late for Chelsea, he's the top scorer for the London based outfit, scoring nine goals and six assists in 24 appearances in all competitions this season. A sensation since joining the Blues in the summer of 2012 from Ligue 1 side Lille for a fee of £32m, he won the Europa League last year.
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder is a gifted playmaker and often described as “mesmerising and astonishing” due to the flair and tricky style of play which makes him difficult to dispossess while his finishing is top notch.
The former Ligue 1 Player of the Year even drew comparisons with compatriot Enzo Scifo who too praised Hazard and was left impressed by his pace and technical ability.
Although Real Madrid would offer a substantial amount of money for the Belgian international, it would be very difficult to tempt Chelsea, especially Jose Mourinho, to let go off one of their main assets and by far their best player in 2013-14.
