Chelsea turned down Real Madrid’s £60million bid for Eden Hazard last month, according to Sky Sports.

The 28-year-old has been hotly-tipped to join the La Liga giants this summer, especially following the return of his hero Zinedine Zidane as manager.

Hazard is seen as Madrid’s primary summer transfer target, but Chelsea will not be selling without a fight.

Madrid’s attempts to land the Belgian for £60million failed previously, with the Blues demanding more for one of Europe’s premier attacking players.

They are looking at close to double that figure for Hazard’s services.

The report also states that West Ham winger Felipe Anderson is seen as a strong alternative, should the Hazard move fail to materialise.

Chelsea’s star man has turned down a new deal at Stamford Bridge, and despite the bid being rejected, a summer exit still looks likely.

Hazard scored twice for Belgium on Thursday night, as Roberto Martinez’s side won 3-1 at home to Russia.
