Real Madrid and PSG could make a sensational January moves for Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard, according to the Express.
The report has suggested that the two clubs are plotting bids in the region of £70 million for the Belgian ace, despite Blues boss Jose Mourinho recently revealing that the player is close to agreeing a new deal with the club.
Will he leave?
It appears, then, that the ex-Lille man could yet depart the Stamford Bridge outfit, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club would be willing to let their star player leave in the next transfer window.
It would certainly come as a major surprise as it would prove extremely difficult to replace him in the next market. Blues fans, though, will still feel confident that Hazard will remain at the club for the foreseeable future.
They would rather that he signs his new deal sooner rather than later as the club look to keep him for the long term.

As mentioned, Mourinho only recently insisted that he expects Hazard to stay with the club, as he told reporters: "If they're happy to be here, like Eden is showing, he will sign a new contract sooner or later.
"They can basically be the Chelsea team for the next few years."
It remains to be seen as to whether the likes of Real Madrid and PSG step up their interest in the talented winger, but they may well have to move quickly in order to get their man.
Hazard, meanwhile, will be in great spirits after scoring Chelsea's opening goal in the club's 3-0 victory over Tottenham yesterday. Mourinho's side continued their unbeaten start to the season after an impressive win against their London rivals on home soil.
With the club set to travel to St James' Park this weekend, they will once again be hoping to secure all three points against Newcastle United as they look to maintain their six point lead at the top of the Premier League table.
