Eden Hazard’s representatives have told Barcelona that he intends to leave Chelsea this summer, according to reports in Spain.
The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his current contract with Chelsea and has not yet committed to a new deal.
Hazard has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid and has made no secret of his desire to play for the Champions League holders.
But according to Sport, the Belgium international is one of Barcelona’s priority targets and the club made their first approach to Hazard’s representatives last week.
The report claims that Barcelona have been informed by Hazard’s camp that the forward is looking to leave Stamford Bridge
It’s also claimed that Hazard believes now is the right time to leave Chelsea in order to further his career and win more titles.
Hazard is said to be interested in joining Barcelona and the club’s coaching staff are excited by the prospect of working with the Belgian.
The report claims that Hazard would not demand an ‘astronomical’ wage from Barca and his salary would be topped up by performance-related bonuses.
Speaking earlier this week, Hazard suggested once again that he would be open to joining Real Madrid this summer.
‘Zidane is someone special it’s true, but I think Real is everyone’s dream,’ he told beIN Sports.
‘Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey [of Real] is special but the blue jersey suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay.
‘For now, it’s the World Cup. As I have said at least 100 times, I am in Chelsea and for the moment nobody has made me an offer.’
