Chelsea have today revealed that they are open to negotiating with Real Madrid over the potential transfer of Eden Hazard. And Real could even separate their vaunted ‘BBC’ to fit the Belgian in to their system.
The devastating Bernabeu attacking trio of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano were extremely influential in Real winning the Champions League in two of the last three seasons. But president Florentino Perez may be getting anxious that the Spanish side have not made a signing worthy of the ‘Galactico’ tag for three years now.
Therefore, this summer could see a Real reshuffle, with reports in Spain claiming negotiations have already begun between themselves and Chelsea over Hazard.
Marca say that Hazard was promised by Chelsea that if Real Madrid registered their interest they would listen and consider any offer.
The Spanish outlet went on to report that Hazard’s representatives had held ‘positive talks’ over a switch, and that Hazard had even started to learn Spanish.
Real currently mostly adopt a 4-3-3 system under Zinedine Zidane, but would be open to changing to a 4-4-2 should Hazard signs, with him operating at the tip of a midfield diamond behind two strikers.
