That leaves another Premier League star in Eden Hazard as a mentioned option, though his already sky-high value will only grow larger if Belgium prevail in Russian Federation. The 27-year-old produced a performance that overshadowed Neymar in Belgium's 2-0 win on Friday night and he could be set for a big money move.

The reports came in the wake of Portugal's last-16 exit at the World Cup in Russian Federation, with Ronaldo seemingly close to completing the switch.

And he recently revealed signing for the European champions is a dream of his.

It is understood there could be significant developments in the next 48 hours, with Real expected to make a final decision about how to proceed with the offer from Juventus. Hazard told beIN SPORTS.

"Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey (of Madrid) is special but the blue jersey (of Chelsea) suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay".

"The victor of Belgium v France will be the firm favourites to win a World Cup that has made for compelling viewing from first to last", he added.

Chelsea have not made any summer signings and their managerial situation is still uncertain with Antonio Conte in charge. The Portuguese has mainly stood out for his goals with Los Blancos, and for all of Hazard's abilities, he's not someone who routinely scores 25 goals or more per season.

Convincing PSG to sell one of those two will likely be as hard as convincing Chelsea to part with Hazard, but Les Parisiens' ongoing issues with financial fair play should give Real and advantage―and the Blues as well.
