REAL MADRID are reportedly confident of landing Eden Hazard with Maurizio Sarri struggling for consistency at Chelsea.
The Mirror claims Los Blancos chiefs reckon they can take full advantage of the chaos engulfing Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea in a desperate fight to save their season.
The Blues have shipped 12 goals in their last three away matches, with Sunday’s 6-0 defeat to Manchester City a new low.
It now remains to be seen if Chelsea can finish in the top four after being leapfrogged by Manchester United and Arsenal.
But their current situation also means Hazard is unlikely to pen a contract extension, with his current deal expiring in 2020.
And Real believe the time is right to bring the Belgian to the Bernabeu, with the player himself admitting on several occasions that he would love to move to the Spanish capital.

However, there could be a way for Hazard to remain in West London.
Although it is not good news for under-pressure Sarri.
SunSport can reveal Chelsea are plotting to sack the Italian, who appears to be out of his depth.
And they are ready to move for ex-Real boss Zinedine Zidane, who is Hazard’s idol and could potentially get the very best out of the forward.
