Barcelona To Offer Chelsea Huge Cash Plus Current Nou Camp Star For Hazard
Barcelona really, really want Eden Hazard and reports even suggest the club are set to table an offer which includes a player and cash.
Following a superb World Cup with Belgium, Hazard has attracted plenty of interest.
The likes of Real Madrid and the aforementioned Barcelona are hellbent on securing his services ahead of the new season.
Hazard dropped a major hint about his Chelsea future by insinuating his future lies away from Stamford Bridge.
"After six wonderful years at Chelsea, it might be time to discover something different," he said after beating England to clinch third spot in Russia.
"Certainly after this World Cup. I can decide if I want to stay or go, but Chelsea will make the final decision - if they want to let me go. You know my preferred destination."
His come-and-get-me plea instantly sparked movement in the Real Madrid camp, who reportedly held talks to sign him for a transfer fee in the region of £100 million.

However, Real Madrid face stiff competition from fierce rivals Barcelona.
The La Liga champions are willing to offer Ousmane Dembele and cash to land Hazard, according to Spanish outlet SPORT.
The French starlet joined the iconic Camp Nou from Borussia Dortmund for a reported £96 million, last summer.
But he failed to make a significant impression, with his future already in a cloud of uncertainty. He's also being heavily linked with a switch to Liverpool.
Naturally, new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is hoping to keep Hazard for the new campaign.
The Italian boss has drafted in Jorginho and remains keen on reinforcing his side.
Though will Sarri call upon Hazard? Watch this space.
