Thomas Tuchel is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.
Chelsea are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Belgium international will offer the Chelsea boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Chelsea are plotting a shock move to bring Eden Hazard to Stamford Bridge, but for less than half the price they sold him. Chelsea are interested in a move to re-sign Eden Hazard from Real Madrid. DefensaCentral claim Chelsea officials “have not lost sight” of their former talisman. In fact “Chelsea would be very interested in signing” the Belgium international again. However, they would only look to go to a maximum of €40m to €50m for the attacker they sold to Real in July 2019 for a club-record transfer of £130m including all add-ons.”
