Thibaut Courtois in 'advanced discussions' with Real Madrid

Barcelona set their sights on Eden Hazard- reports

The 27-year-old signed off from a successful campaign in Russian Federation with his third goal of the tournament as Belgium beat England 2-0 in the third-place play-off in St Petersburg on Saturday.

That preferred destination has always been Real Madrid, but there are doubts over whether the Spanish giants are interesting in signing Hazard in a deal that is likely to cost them in excess of £120 million. The biggest aspect I can tell you that not many people know is his incredible personality and leadership.

Real are said to be considering Hazard as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo after the five-time Ballon d'Or victor joined Juventus this week. An impressive World Cup campaign with Belgium appears to have restarted rumours of an exit from Chelsea. That does not necessarily mean that I will go back to Spain, but for me they are very important.

Following Ronaldo's move to Juventus, Madrid have over £100 million burning a hole in their pocket and have identified Hazard as the key target in their search for a new superstar.

Thankfully Clarke's questions moved onto the more relevant topic of Hazard's club future and asked if having had such a wonderful tournament, whether he might be tempted away from the Premier League this summer.

While the Blues are not keen to sell him, there are suggestions Hazard is considering his future and will take a decision based on the kind of players Chelsea sign this summer. "I go on holiday and then we will see".

"We knew already for a while that Sarri was going to become the new manager", Hazard said.
