Real Madrid cool interest in Eden Hazard

According to the Daily Mail, Real Madrid have tabled a £100M bid for Hazard's teammate Willian, as well as long-term target Courtois.

The Spanish giants have been linked with a move for Chelsea's Hazard following Cristiano Ronaldo's defection to Juventus, but have been put off by the Blues' hefty valuation of the Belgium star.

That is despite rumours about a potential move for Thibaut Courtois, with the goalkeeper insisting that he is calm and confident that he will remain first choice in goal, as he has for three successful years.

Since then, he's helped bring two titles to Chelsea, making over 200 appearances in the top tier, and has become idolised by fans for the electricity he brings onto the pitch.

Reports from Spain suggest that Real Madrid have ended their pursuit of Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard.

United Kingdom lawmakers call for social media tariffs to curb ‘fake news’
But Mr Cummings called the report "fake news" when he published the leaked copy on Friday. Nor are they publishers, since that model traditionally commissions and pays for content.

After an impressive World Cup, 29-year-old Willian looked set to join Barcelona last week but the Catalan club baulked at Chelsea's £70m asking price and settled on spending half that amount on Bordeaux winger Malcom instead.

The major reason for their change in stance is the fact that new Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui is focusing on handing Isco and Marco Asensio a key role in the upcoming season.

Chelsea are said to value Hazard at around £200m - a figure that Florentino Perez and co. don't want to pay for the sake of a big-name replacement. We've seen transfer fees reported for Hazard in the £170-£180 million range, which would make him the second most expensive player of all time.

AS reports Lopetegui is ready to shape his team around Isco ahead of the new campaign.
