Real Madrid have identified Belgium international forward Eden Hazard as a primary target ahead of this summer’s transfer window, according to the Mirror.

The La Liga giants, who defeated Alaves 3-0 on Sunday to preserve their two-point lead over second-placed FC Barcelona in the Spanish top-flight, are said to be ready to break the bank this summer, putting aside £100m in a bid to land the Chelsea winger.

The 26-year-old, who has 76 international caps for his country, has scored 11 goals and provided six assists in 32 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League leaders so far this season.

Hazard, who arrived at Stamford Bridge back in June 2012 following his reported £32m switch from Lille, has netted 66 goals overall in almost 250 games for The Blues, and has played a massive role in Antonio Conte’s men establishing a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League this term.

The report suggests Madrid are ready to add striker Alvaro Morata into any negotiations, which could see the deal topple the £100m milestone itself, surpassing the world record £89m Manchester United splashed out on re-signing Paul Pogba last summer.
