REAL MADRID club officials are reportedly being sent to London in a bid to sound out Chelsea star Eden Hazard

The La Liga champions wanted to snap up Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe.

However, securing his signature is proving to be hugely expensive.

Monaco are demanding at least £165m to part with their prized asset.

And, according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, tax payments could push Real’s outlay to over £200m.

Given the huge potential cost of bringing Mbappe to the Bernabeu, Perez has given the green light to alternative options.

That has re-opened the door for Zinedine Zidane to swoop for his preferred target, Hazard.

Don Balon say Real will now try and ascertain whether Hazard fancies a move to the Spanish capital.

It’s suggested Zidane has repeatedly asked to sign the Belgium international.

However, Perez was concerned the midfield maestro didn’t have enough commercial appeal.

Despite speculation surrounding Hazard’s future at Stamford Bridge, Antone Conte has insisted he’s not for sale.

He said: “I don’t know anything about this situation.

“In the past I read a lot of stories about [Hazard going to] Real Madrid and now there is Barcelona.

“This is the transfer market and we must understand this.

“Will Hazard stay with us? Yes. He is very happy to stay with us and to play for Chelsea.”
