How Chelsea Became Favourites To Sign Spain-based Liverpool Target



Marco Asensio

West London giants Chelsea have emerged as favourites in the race to sign Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio who has previously been linked with a move to Premier League title contenders Liverpool.

Don Balon claim that Real Madrid are ready to offer Chelsea a first refusal on the Spanish international in their quest to sign Eden Hazard.

Real Madrid have made Chelsea talisman Hazard their top priority ahead of the resumption of the transfer window in the summer.

The Belgian international star has already talked up his desire to sign for the reigning European champions.

In a recent interview with French media outlet RMC, Eden Hazard revealed that he has already made a decision on his future but the former Lille player didn’t say whether it lies at Stamford Bridge or not.

He has less than 18 months on his current contract with the Blues.

By this summer, Chelsea will have to make a big decision on him if Jenna’s not signed a new deal with one year remaining.

Chelsea will have to decide whether to sell him or let him run out his contract which runs until the end of next season.

Eden Hazard has been in superb form for Chelsea in the Premier League with 12 goals and 10 assists but his form has tailed off in recent weeks.
