However, as the Spanish newspaper AS points out, teams that have sufficient financial sources to make a tempting offer to Chelsea are strongly considering to buy him out. As Hazard has expressed his interest to switch, he “is likely to try to push” a potential “deal through”
Could Hazard play for Real Madrid?
Cristiano Ronaldo’s leaving Real Madrid for Juventus is more or less set in stone. Neymar and Mbappé are Real’s top targets to fill CR7’s golden shoes, but neither have buy-out clauses in their contracts. Thus, the Belgian star is the Spanish team’s “Plan C” and most realistic choice.
Hazard himself had said that a strong World Cup appearance would make the negotiations of a transfer to Real much easier. Having just broken the record for successive dribbles at a World Cup, he will indeed be in a very good position. Unibet Sportsbook offers a relatively high, 3.00 increase if Hazard joins the ranks of Real Madrid.
Alternative bets on Eden Hazard’s transfer plans
Rumors have also linked him with Paris Saint-Germain. Hazard is known to be interested to play with Neymar. The Brazilian superstar’s move to PSG last year set the record for the most expensive football transfer and the team is reportedly uninterested in selling him. Should Hazard want to give assists for Neymar in the next season, he might need to sign a deal with PSG. The official betting odds for that happening are 2.85.
There are even more clubs rumored to have a shot at snapping up the Belgian winger. Their chances are significantly smaller, but if you are looking for an inside bet on Eden Hazard’s transfer plans, you can check out the full list of potential teams on Unibet Sportsbook.
