Chelsea have been boosted by the news that Paris Saint Germain (PSG) superstar Neymar could prove to be the stumbling block that prevents star player Eden Hazard from sealing a dream move to Real Madrid.
Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard has already talked up his desire to join Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid but the 28-year-old might not get his wish as reported by popular media outlet Goal.
It was revealed that Brazilian international player Neymar is the Los Merengues’ top transfer target in the summer ahead of Eden Hazard.
Neymar is the most expensive player in world football following his transfer from Barcelona to PSG in the summer of 2017 and a move to Real Madrid is expected to cost more if the Spaniards manage to pull off a deal for him.
PSG activated the £200m (€222m) release clause in his then contract at Barcelona to secure his transfer from the Spanish La Liga club.
The ex-Santos player has been linked with a return to Barcelona as well.
Eden Hazard would definitely become the main priority for Real Madrid if they can’t get Neymar off his lucrative contract at the Parc des Princes.
He has just 18 months left on his current deal with West London giants Chelsea.
