Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to make an opening bid of £70m for Chelsea winger Eden Hazard.

Real Madrid have reportedly decided to make an offer of £70m for Chelsea winger Eden Hazard.

The Spanish giants are long-term admirers of Hazard, who appears likely to leave Chelsea in the summer if he does not pen a new contract at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have allegedly set an asking price of £100m, but according to The Sun, Real intend to make an offer considerably lower than the Premier League club's valuation.

The report adds that Real do not expect to be successful with their opening approach, but want it to be viewed as a sign of their intent ahead of next season.

Returning head coach Zinedine Zidane could be provided with funds of up to £300m to transform Real's underperforming squad.
