Real Madrid’s willingness to offload Asensio should offer Tottenham a summer boost

Real Madrid’s willingness to offload Asensio should offer Tottenham a summer boost

That's what they did this summer, sending Mateo Kovacic on loan to Stamford Bridge to sweeten the deal to bring in Thibaut Courtois at the eleventh hour - and they apparently want to repeat the trick again.

Chelsea are braced for Real to make an offer for Hazard, who they value at upwards of £100million despite the fact his deal will only have 12 months left to run at the end of the season.

Goal has, however, revealed that the 28-year-old is holding out for a move to Real Madrid which has been mooted for some time. Additionally, playing at a more creative club like Chelsea could potentially boost his return further.

"Would I like to sign for Real Madrid?".

The Brazilian worldwide star was on the payroll of Premier League title challengers Liverpool before he left the Merseysiders to join Barcelona past year but he has endured a frustrating time in Spain.

"It's mystifying with Sarri, after his comments about struggling to motivate the players I thought "this isn't going to go well", he told Sky Sports.

The Spanish giants have made Hazard their number one transfer target are said to be willing to pay £100m to prize him away from Chelsea.

If he wants to go, I think he has to go.

In Hazard's case, we remain hopeful that he extends his contract - and will do until the day we see him holding the Real Madrid shirt.

"Why not? I have never heard from Zidane and if he goes to Manchester United tomorrow, for example, I would not be there", he told France Football about his ambitions.

"I will wait for the right moment".
