  • 4 month ago
The European champions have been in constant contact with the Principality outfit for the teenage forward, and they are hoping to finalising a deal before the transfer deadline.

Should the deal not go through, the La Liga holders have identified a suitable backup in Chelsea 's Eden Hazard , Don Balon reports. The Belgian attacker is currently recovering from an ankle problem, but he is nevertheless seen as a prime option following another top campaign with the Blues.

Hazard bagged 16 goals during the Blues' league triumph last term, and he, later on, refused to rule out a future move to the Bernabeu. The arrival of Hazard to Los Blancos would present doubts over the future of Gareth Bale , who is currently the most insecure of the front three involving Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema .
