The Galacticos have been reported to be interested in both the players in the past but talks of a permanent transfer never really materialized. However, after 6 months from the departure of both Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo from the club, Florentino Perez might be motivated to splash exorbitant amounts for world-class talents such as the Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur attackers.
On the Transfer Talk podcast, Graham Hunter said, “It’s evidently true that both Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen appeal to Real Madrid. Having watched them for some time, while Eden Hazard could possibly move inside and perform a little like Eriksen does, I would argue that you could argue both players in a Real Madrid team – no question at all.
“The barrier previously, apart from Chelsea being unwilling to sell Eden Hazard, that for a couple of seasons now it’s looked rather impossible to fit Eden Hazard into a Real Madrid team where Isco and Marco Asensio are both flourishing.
“Right now, the club aren’t backing him, the fans are giving him grief and there’s a market for Isco. While I don’t see Isco leaving Real Madrid leaving in January – that would be something of a surprise – his time at Real Madrid seems to be coming to an end. Secondly, Asensio’s progress has been somewhat stunted. The concept of him being challenged for his place, or sitting on the bench if Eden Hazard was bought, that seemed impossible before but it doesn’t now.”
“The conditions of being bought by Real Madrid have probably changed and are probably more attractive for Hazard. Were Real Madrid able to persuade both the London clubs, were Hazard and Eriksen in the Real Madrid team, not only would it be feasible tactically but it would be something they could do with right now with the way they have been playing.”
