Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Premier League champions Chelsea.
So far this season in the Spanish La Liga, Marco Asensio has been superb for Real Madrid in the midfield. And according to the report by Don Balon, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich wants to bring the 22-year-old Spaniard to Stamford Bridge.
The report also stated that Chelsea are ready to sell Belgian star Eden Hazard to Real Madrid so as to help the process of luring Asensio to the Premier League. Eden Hazard has for the last three season been a target for reigning Spanish and European League champions Real Madrid.
Previously, NAIJ.com had reported how Eden Hazard’s dad revealed that his son snubbed the latest contract offer presented to him by the Blues to favor a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid next summer.
The 26-year-old rejected a contract extension at Chelsea, according to his father, who says his son is holding out for a Real Madrid transfer. Eden Hazard was highly instrumental as Chelsea romped to the Premier League title, after a sub-par season before in which he struggled for goals.
