Chelsea have told La Liga and UCL giants Real Madrid that if they want to land Eden Hazard this transfer market then they must include Spain international Marco Asensio in any deal.
Diario Gol states that the Blues are aware of the increasing interest from Real Madrid, with rumours circulating about Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club.
Both Neymar and Hazard are being linked with huge-money moves to the Santiago Bernabeu as Ronaldo looks set to depart for Juventus.
The report states that a talented attacking midfielder is ready to take the number ten shirt at the west London club should he joins this summer.
A move to land either Hazard or Neymar would cast doubts over Asensio’s playing time at the club next season.
Attacking midfielder is said to be a hopeful of nailing down a place in the team under Julen Lopetegui, whom he worked with for the Spanish Under-21 side.
While it would come as a massive blow to lose Belgium international this summer, a deal to bring in Los Blanco’s prized asset would help fill the void left by Eden Hazard.
