Real Madrid ‘open to offers for three players ahead of Kylian Mbappe arrival’, Re-offer Eden Hazard to Chelsea
Real Madrid would reportedly be willing to listen to offers for Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio or Rodrygo if they complete a deal to sign Kylian Mbappe before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
Los Blancos have made their move for the French winger in the final week of the window, but Paris Saint-Germain have so far held firm on their valuation of the 22-year-old.
The Spanish giants are understood to have seen two bids rejected already – the latest worth a reported £154.5m including add-ons – and are expected to return with a third offer as they bid to pull off their dream signing.
Mbappe has now entered the final 12 months of his contract at the Parc des Princes and has refused to put pen to paper on a new deal, meaning that PSG face losing him for free next summer if they do not cash in on him now.
Recent reports have suggested that Madrid may be forced to wait until January to seal Mbappe’s signature, but Goal claims that they are still preparing for his possible arrival this month.
The preparation includes putting other players up for sale, and the report claims that Madrid will consider bids for Hazard, Asensio or Rodrygo to make way for Mbappe.
Juventus have been linked with a move for Hazard as a replacement for Manchester United-bound Cristiano Ronaldo, although the Belgian has previously insisted that he intends to fight for his place at the Bernabeu.
However, from the report, it seems real Madrid as are considering Chelsea as a better suitor for the Belgian.
Chelsea have reportedly been offered the opportunity to sign Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard, just two years after he departed Stamford Bridge for the Bernabeu.
After a hugely-successful seven-year stint in West London, Hazard was allowed to leave the Blues for a fee in the region of £89m.
However, a succession of injuries have prevented the Belgium international from having an impact in Spain, leaving his future at Real up in the air.
According to AS, ‘intermediaries’ have informed Chelsea that they are free to negotiate a potential reunion with their former star man.
