Real Madrid demand change in asking price for Premier League superstar

For Spanish giants Real Madrid, the upcoming transfer window is an important period of time, with several star players set to arrive at the club.

Meanwhile, with each passing day, we hear fresh reports of Eden Hazard linked with Los Blancos, which is a strong indication of how important Real Madrid considers him to be. They are ready to do all that they can to secure his services for next season, especially after the start himself expressed interest in working with Zinedine Zidane the Madrid boss.

Earlier, it was reported that Chelsea have tabled an asking price of £100million for the star, but as of latest, Real Madrid does not want to pay so much.

The Telegraph reports that the Merengues do not want to pay more than £85million for the 28-year old. It is also being understood that talks over the Belgian, between Chelsea and Real Madrid are expected to begin afresh this week.

Hence, a final decision on the situation will be taken soon, as per the English news agency.

FOX Sports Asia probability ratings: 5/5; Hazard IS Real Madrid’s sooner or later, as evident from all the reports we have heard of him and the club so far. Chelsea will have to agree to settle with Real Madrid’s bid at some point of time, because Hazard is definitely not extending his contract with the Blues – allowing him to leave now at a transfer fee is hence much more profitable than having to offload him for free when his time runs out next year.
