Real Madrid seems to be absolutely confident in their pursuit of Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard next summer and has even told mega sports brand Adidas to begin preparations for his arrival very soon.
The La Liga giants may possibly be targeting the Belgian talisman as a possible replacement for their own Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been struggling to find his best form this season and the Los Blancos are already looking at life after Ronaldo, who turns 33 in a few weeks.

Why we think It’s Possible-
To make matters more interesting, Hazard has already rejected lucrative contracts from the Premier League champions as they are desperate to keep a hold of arguably one of the best players in the world. With Ronaldo scoring just six times this season, including two at during the demolition of Deportivo La Coruna last weekend, most of the Madrid fans believe that the former Manchester United starlet’s days at the Santiago Bernabeu are numbered. His injuries have also not helped his cause.
Even Hazard’s father, Thierry claimed that his son had not extended his deal with Chelsea because of his admiration to play for Real Madrid to which the 27-year-old replied, ”My dad says some bad things. I talked with him, no worries. I’m focused on Chelsea, I’ve got two years contract left and I’m happy here like I said ten times before. I want to finish this year and then we’ll see.”
Eden Hazard is not impressed with his dad.

And the Champions League holders are reportedly ready to offer Hazard the Number 10 jersey, which is currently worn by Croatian Luka Modric, who may also depart the Spanish Champions at the end of the campaign. But many of the inside news reports claim that Hazard will be joining Real Madrid after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
It seems quite obvious with the above information that Hazard will join Real Madrid soon, Chelsea fans and manager Antonio Conte will be hoping that he signs a new deal with them but it’s highly unlikely when all the reasons point toward a move to the Galacticos.
