According to a report by Daily Mirror, Real Madrid are hopeful that they will finally secure the services of Eden Hazard in the summer transfer window.

Eden Hazard was back in action at Cobham training ground on Thursday as he attempts to focus ahead of Chelsea's clash with Manchester City on Sunday.

They report that Chelsea will demand £100m in the summer if the European champions want the Belgian but Real believe they can get the cost of the deal down by offering a makeweight.

Should Hazard leave, Chelsea would need to snap up a replacement and Richarlison could be an option with the 21-year-old having been on the club's radar since he started his career in his homeland with Fluminense.

Hazard on Tuesday confirmed that he has made a decision over his future at Stamford Bridge.

Much like Hazard at Chelsea, Los Blancos have relied heavily on the returns of Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema this season, which has set a unsafe precedent, invariably leading to the side's struggles at different stages of the campaign. "We'll see what happens after".

"I don't know exactly the situation, but I think Eden at the moment doesn't know the final choice".

Sarri said: "He's not decided yet if he wants to stay here or if he wants a new experience in another club".

Asked to further elaborate on when he will reveal his decision, Hazard said: "I do not know, we'll see. All I have in my head right now is to work hard".
