Real Madrid have another target if they can’t bring Eden Hazard
Eden Hazard has been on Real Madrid’s shopping list for a while and now, with Zinedine Zidane back in charge, he could be closer to a move to Santiago Bernabeu. But the La Liga giants also have a backup plan if they don’t manage to snub Chelsea’s winger.
As Sky Sports reports, the Blues have already refected Real’s first offer for the Belgian, making it clear that they are willing to let him go only for over £100 million. But considering that Hazard is out of contract next summer and he is yet to sign a new agreement, the Spanish club still hopes.
On the other side, with Chelsea subject to a transfer ban for the next two windows, they could decide to keep the player for another season, meaning that Real Madrid should look somewhere else.
And they have already done it, identifying West Ham United’s Felipe Anderson as a target. The Hammers value him at £65 million, meaning that his departure could be an excellent deal for the club, as they signed him last year, for a club-record fee of £33.5 million.
The Brazilian has featured in all of his club’s games this season, scoring eight times and providing six assists. He is yet to find the net this year, but, overall, he proved that he can turn into a world class player, under proper guidance.
Sure, a lot of fans would agree that Eden Hazard is a way better option, but not even Real Madrid can have any player in the world.
