Back when Eden Hazard was lighting things up at Lille, he was a much sought after talent. Ever since his arrival at Chelsea in 2012, he has continued to excite and deliver; earning an outstanding reputation for himself.
The pacey left winger who can also operate as an attacking midfielder or a false 9, is one of the most creative players in the league. In a season laden with 26 goal contributions in the top flight, 14 of them being goals, it’s easy to see why Hazard is still a player whose signature is pursued persistently.
With the Chelsea number 10 approaching the peak of his career, the transfer saga surrounding the Belgian superstar is picking up speed.
While only a handful of clubs can afford the huge price-tag that comes with Hazard, there seems to be only one club in contention to sign him – Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants have been linked with the Chelsea man for quite a while now, with only rumors floating around. But the speculation appears to have gone into overdrive, with Sky Sports reporting today that the Spanish giants are ‘increasingly confident’ of signing the Belgian.

The propaganda from Real Madrid seems to have well & truly begun as it appears that Sergio Ramos has recently started following Eden Hazard on Twitter.
With speculation floating around strongly suggesting that Hazard will be in Madrid white next season, the emergence of Ramos’ activity looks to have added fuel to the fire.

And while this could just be bad timing and a coincidence, it must be noted that nothing is confirmed until it actually is confirmed. And for the numerous Blues’ fans who idolize their star player, the fact that it is just transfer speculation is their only solace.
With Zinedine Zidane at the helm (again) for Los Blancos, Hazard has an opportunity to learn from and play under the tutelage of his footballing hero. Will he make the move to Madrid in the summer?
