The first one is Eden Hazard, even though Chelsea has been reluctant to make a compromise regarding the winger’s transfer fee.
Even so, Los Blancos are allegedly working to put together a shocking £210 bid for the 28-year-old, according to English outlet The Sun. Hazard hasn’t been shy about his desire to play under Zinedine Zidane’s tutelage, even claiming ‘you didn’t have to ask if he wanted to play for Real Madrid because everybody knew the answer’.
Moreover, The Sun claim Real Madrid would offer Hazard a contract worthy of roughly £110m over the next six years to make him one of the highest paid players in the world.
As for their other star, Real Madrid would love to secure a move for Paul Pogba as soon as they get Eden Hazard to commit with them, as per Spanish outlet Marca.
Getting Pogba, however, won’t be easy, as Manchester United have already told the Frenchman that they won’t entertain the idea of selling him this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees him as a key part of his project.
Florentino Perez wouldn’t mind making a £100 million bid for the World Cup winner, even though the Daily Star reported the Red Devils aren’t willing to negotiate for the midfielder.
United have made securing Pogba and David De Gea their top priorities for the summer, even ahead of completing big name signings to strengthen their squad.
De Gea had also been linked with a move to Real Madrid earlier on his career, but it looks like Keylor Navas is ready to stay put at Santiago Bernabeu amid Zidane’s comeback.
As for Pogba and Hazard, both players have flirted back and forth with Real Madrid and Zizou, so it’s pretty clear that Los Blancos have a lot of leverage on a potential move for the stars.
