Spanish giantsReal Madridare willing to sacrifice two players to bring in the Chelsea star, Eden Hazard, to Santiago Bernabeu.
Chelsea are in a dilemma to keep Hazard,because, the Belgian international is only left with 18-month contract with the Blues.
According to reports, Real under Florentino Perez will take advantage of the situation to bring Hazard to the Madrid club, and for the sake of this transfer, Real Madrid can sacrifice two players.
Real Madrid is ready to offer Mateo Kovavic, who is now an on loan at Chelsea.In addition, Isco, who has been a reserver under coach Santiago Solari, will also be offered to Chelsea to materialize Hazard's transfer.
Real didn't replace Cristiano Ronaldo last summer following his move to Juventus, but Hazard would fit the bill as a high-profile addition 12 months later.
Football operations and communications consultant Ian McGarry revealed earlier this year that Hazard has almost agreed personal terms over a move to Spain.
Speaking on the Transfer Window podcast, he said, "My view on this, my information from people close to Hazard, in his inner circle is, he believes very firmly that he will be a Real Madrid player next summer.
"The financial terms of his contract are almost agreed, and therefore whoever is in charge, he’ll still be there."
Although this potential offer could satisfy all parts involved, it's extremely hard to complete such a transfer involving three different players on a swap with no money involved.
Real Madrid would also be overpaying for Hazard if this deal comes to fruition, given that he will have only one year left on his deal next summer and that both Kovacic and Isco are high-quality players still on their prime.
In reality, it seems that this transfer is quite unlikely and that both Chelsea and Madrid will need to work very hard if they want to reach an agreement for Hazard, Isco and Kovacic.
