EPL: Chelsea wants Asensio as Real Madrid eye record-breaking Hazard transfer

Chelsea are keeping tabs on Real Madrid midfielder, Marco Asensio, but any transfer would likely hinge on Eden Hazard moving in the opposite direction, The Sun, UK, reports.

The Premier league champions have been interested in the Spanish international for months, Spanish outlet, Diario Gol reports.

Asensio has only started nine LaLiga games for the Los Blancos this season.

The 22-year-old has scored eight goals in all competitions this season.

The LaLiga champions are preparing a sensational £120million summer move for Hazard, whose Chelsea contract runs out in 2020 and he is yet to sign a new deal.

Hazard’s dad, Thierry had told a Belgian newspaper that Eden is waiting to hear if Madrid want him. “Eden has refused a contract extension if necessary, to follow interest from Real Madrid,” Thierry said.
