Chelsea receive good news about Real Madrid’s plans to sign Hazard

Several marquee players were earmarked by Real Madrid but all of them resulted in major failures.

Courtois has been the Spanish club's No 1 target for some time with the Real Madrid board convinced they will get their man as soon as Chelsea have signed a replacement.

That is despite rumours about a potential move for Thibaut Courtois, with the goalkeeper insisting that he is calm and confident that he will remain first choice in goal, as he has for three successful years.

And while the European champions are big admirers of the Belgian, new boss Julen Lopetegui feels he already has enough options.

Who will be heading out the Stamford Bridge exit door?

Los Blancos are in with a great chance of signing Courtois given his desire to move closer to his children who live in the Spanish capital, while he also has just one year left on his contract.

Real Madrid must pay a world record 225 million euros if they want to sign Eden Hazard, with Chelsea refusing to let the Belgian winger go easily according to the Daily Mail.

Hazard has been the talisman for Chelsea over the past few seasons and was the standout performer last season as well a single-handedly winning the Blues the FA Cup final against Manchester United at Wembley.

Hazard's transfer to Real Madrid will also mean one more thing - Chelsea will have their foot in the grave.

If we are to sell Hazard, we are looking at a fee of £180million.

Over the four seasons he has appeared between the posts for Chelsea, Courtois has made over 150 appearances and won the Golden Glove at the end of the 2016/17 season.

AS reports Lopetegui is ready to shape his team around Isco ahead of the new campaign.
