Real Madrid reportedly ends Hazard chase

Huge boost for Chelsea as Real Madrid reportedly ends Hazard chase

July 28, 2018 By Ali M.
Lopetegui is ready to look within his squad to fill the void left by Cristiano's departure.

Despite the heavy rumors, Eden Hazard might not end up becoming a Galactico this summer. This is according to a Diario AS report that states Real Madrid has given up on their pursuit of the Belgian superstar.

The Spanish publication highlights two key issues for Los Blancos ending their chase. The first is the hefty fee the London giant is demanding and the fact that the transfer window shuts close on August 9 in England, earlier than in Spain.

The Blues will not entertain the idea of selling the attacker for less $262M, a price tag which the Spanish heavyweight is reluctant to meet. With time not being on their side, the Champions League holder is ready to cool their interest in the 27-year-old.

Secondly, Julen Lopetegui is ready to look within his squad to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo's departure. One man who is set to take center-stage at the Bernabeu now that the Portuguese superstar is gone is Isco.

The new manager is ready to build his team around the former Malaga wonder kid, with Marco Asensio also tipped to enjoy a more prominent in the post-Zidane era. Lopetegui wishes to avoid interferences in the Spanish duo's development, hence his willingness to snub Hazard.

Florentino Perez, however, is known to be keen on a marquee signing. Alongside the Stamford Bridge favorite, Neymar and Mbappe are two other men the Real Madrid dreams to acquire. If the Madrid outfit cannot land any of those three men this summer, expect them to resume their pursuit in the near future.
