Where to play Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois next season? That question holds a lot of Belgian football fans busy. Real Madrid is explicitly interested in both the Red Devils, but the two transfers? If we zaterdagedities of AXIS and The Daily Mail may not believe.

Chelsea would do everything to prevent Hazard this summer in the direction of Spain attracts. The Blues according to The Daily Mail, therefore, stick to an unlikely asking price of 200 million pounds. That’s almost 225 million euros and would be a world record as Neymar 222 million cost.

The Daily Star adds that new-fangled Chelsea-coach Maurizio Sarri of the plan is to Hazard his captain for the coming season.

On top of that comes the news of the Spanish newspaper AS that Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui used his veto would have against the arrival of Hazard. The Spaniard would be confident wanting to give up on Isco and Marco Asensio in place of a new ‘Galactico’ in-house this summer.


The likelihood that Thibaut Courtois to Madrid move is a lot bigger. Our national goalkeeper has already has a personal agreement with Real Madrid, but Chelsea have a replacement in house. Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester City was already mentioned but according to Sky Sports is Jordan Pickford high on the London wish-list. The 24-year-old goalkeeper of the Everton played a strong world cup with England. Also Jack Butland (Stoke City) would be one of the alternatives.
