Real Madrid remain “confident” of signing both Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba this summer, according to Sky Sports‘ Kaveh Solhekol.
The Chelsea superstar looks increasingly likely to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, following seven years in a Blues shirt.
Hazard’s head appears to have been turned by the prospect of playing under his boyhood hero Zinedine Zidane, and the reigning European champions see the Belgian as one of their priority signings.
Pogba is also very much on their radar, with the midfielder out of sorts at Manchester United and seemingly ready to push for a move.
Chelsea losing Hazard would be an undoubted blow, considering the 28-year-old’s influence over the years.
He has scored 108 goals in 346 appearances for the Blues and will be incredibly hard to replace.
It isn’t looking good from a Chelsea perspective, with Madrid often masters at signing desired transfer targets.
