Madrid plots two deals to fund Hazard transfer

Real Madrid set to fund Hazard deal with two separate transfers

April 8, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
With the Belgian seemingly getting closer to the Bernabeu, Los Blancos are ready to send a couple of two valuable assets to comply with FFP rules.

Real Madrid's plans to boost their squad next season are in motion, and reports coming in from Spain suggest that Florentino Pérez is already searching for an option to finance Eden Hazard's move to La Casa Blanca.

An article by Spanish newspaper As revealed today that Los Blancos' president is already working out a way to fund Hazard's transfer from Chelsea with two summer transfers. What makes this deals even more interesting is that none of the players involved are part of the team's current squad, which means that Florentino Pérez would still have some big names to negotiate for other potential moves.

According to As' report, Florentino Pérez needs to come up with €116M (some $130M) if they want to meet Chelsea's demands to sell Hazard. In order to fund that, Pérez is ready to offer Mateo Kovacic as part of the negotiation, mainly because the player has adapted quite well to life at Stamford Bridge and because his $56M valuation would make it easier for Los Blancos to push the deal forward.

Maurizio Sarri's words regarding Mateo Kovacic leave no doubt about Chelsea's interest in having the player around, which would work as a charm for Los Blancos in an attempt to add money to their large banking account.

The puzzle would be complete with  James Rodriguez's transfer. The footballer has been named surplus to Zidane's requirements at Real Madrid, and parting ways with the player would make sense now that he seems to have earned Niko Kovac's trust.

The Colombian's loan deal with Bayern expires by the end of the season, but Die Roten managed to include a $47M clause to make the deal permanent, which would come in handy to pay for Hazard's transfer. If he fails to win Kovac's trust in the next few weeks, Juventus has been tipped to be interested in James' services, which would help Real Madrid earn more cash for a player that will not enjoy enough minutes under Zidane.

The key to this deal is to have both Chelsea and Real Madrid reach an agreement over this deals before the end of the season, but all dealings could be brought to a halt if Chelsea can't find a way to escape the two-transfer window ban slapped on them by FIFA. Be that as it may, the future of these three players could be sorted out in the next few weeks.
