Chelsea willing to pay £42m for Eden Hazard return



Chelsea have  indicated to Real Madrid that they are willing to pay £42m to re-sign Eden Hazard.

The Belgium international only departed Stamford Bridge as recently as 2019, Los Blancos agreeing to a deal worth in the region of £130m if all add-ons are fulfilled.

However, the 30-year-old has struggled with injuries and for form during his stint at the Bernabeu, circumstances which make a contract extension past 2024 increasingly unlikely.

Earlier this month, it was claimed that Chelsea held an interest in securing a reunion with the former star man, providing that they can negotiate a deal with Real.
