FC Barcelona Closer To Signing Brazilian Superstar

FC Barcelona Closer To Signing Brazilian Superstar

Eden Hazard's potential move to Real Madrid will put Chelsea in the market and could force Tottenham Hotspur to act fast.

Asensio has been hailed as the future talisman of Spanish football for some years now. But, while the youngster is highly regarded across the world, his struggle to become a regular fixture in the first-team setup has reportedly left him frustrated.

It is believed that Hazard could call for a deal similar to that of Neymar's previous year when the Brazilian signed with Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona, one that came out to approximately $263 million.

And with just two years remaining on his current Chelsea contract, the clubs interested theoretically have a better chance of getting him.

Chelsea didn't qualify for this season's Champions League.

With Hazard not being made a priority and Neymar effectively ruling out an exit from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, things may be quiet on the Madrid transfer front.

It is believed that Spanish giants FC Barcelona are edging closer to the signing of another Brazilian worldwide, one who represented the Selecao at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. But, the presence of Barcelona in the race to sign Hazard will surely have given way to some uneasiness at the Bernabeu.

Ever since the goalkeeper succeeded Iker Casillas as Madrid's No.1, his place has been on a shaky peg as the club have constantly been linked to bigger names.

Should Cech be unwilling to spend the season on the bench, he could decide a return to Chelsea suits both parties, however a move for the likes of Schmeichel or Donnarumma seems more probable.

But Real Madrid are desperate to land the attacker as they look to turn the page on the Ronaldo era.

Monday's match is Chelsea's first under new coach Maurizio Sarri, who has promised an attacking brand of football and Fabregas can not wait to see how it unfolds. We should sell him and reinvest that money in a younger model.
