Chelsea and Spurs braced for Real Madrid bids for Hazard and Eriksen

By | 13th January 2019

REAL MADRID will bid for Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen this summer.

The pair are Real’s top targets and having one season left on their deals will lead to approaches at the end of the season.

Offers for each player will start at £50million, with the European champions expecting initial bids to be rebuffed.

But Chelsea and Spurs risk losing their star men for FREE the following summer and will have to consider offers.

Madrid have identified Spurs playmaker Eriksen as a successor to Luka Modric.

Former Tottenham ace Modric won the Ballon d’Or last year but is 33 now.

Hazard, 28, has been targeted to fill the massive hole left by Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus exit.

Chelsea hope to keep him with a new £300,000-a-week deal but no agreement has been made yet, which has opened the door for Real to launch their bid.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri insisted recently “it’s time to decide” for Hazard over committing his future.

Real Madrid travel to Real Betis in La Liga on Sunday with the 13-time European champions ten points behind leaders Barcelona.
