Coutinho ‘to replace outgoing Hazard’ at Chelsea and more

Hazard, who joined Chelsea from Lille back in 2012, has been on Madrid's radar for some time, with boss Zinedine Zidane keen on securing the forward's services at the Bernabeu.

It is understood that a decision on the two-window long suspension for registering senior players will be made before the closure of the upcoming transfer window, meaning a potential swoop for Coutinho would be viable.

"I'm not sure Real Madrid will want to pay astronomical sums for a 28 or 29-year-old when there could be younger and probably better value for money options on the market".

Speaking after Chelsea's 0-0 draw at Leicester on the final day of the Premier League season, Hazard revealed he has already made a final decision regarding his future and is just waiting for the club to sanction his departure .

With Eden Hazard yet to publicly announce his decision on his Chelsea future, the club are keeping tabs on Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho, the Mirror reports.

The Blues can also deny London rivals Arsenal an opportunity to play in Europe's elite competition by beating Unai Emery's side in the Europa League final. "No, I don't think so". It's that simple. We need to win games in football.

Everyone would agree that Hazard was the one that helped them to a top-four finish with 16 Premier League goals and 15 assists in 2018-19.

"I can say only that the club asked me for the Champions League, and we reached the target".

It's understandable that there might be some intention from him to have a different experience at a different club and in a different league after many years at Chelsea. I love the Premier League, the level is really the best in the world I think, the atmosphere in the stadiums is wonderful.
