Real Madrid have reportedly set up a summer wishlist in the case that they lose Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

Reports this week have suggested that Ronaldo could be about to call time on his record-breaking nine-year stay at the Bernabeu, with Juve heavily linked with the Portugal superstar.

Real are expected to dip into the transfer market to replace Ronaldo, however moves for PSG duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are reportedly almost impossible.

Spanish newspaper AS claims that the LaLiga giants have now turned their attentions to Chelsea winger Eden Hazard as a result.

Hazard has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Bernabeu, and Marca recently that Hazard’s father Thierry contacted Real before the end of the season to present the winger’s services to the club.

Thierry Hazard reportedly told the Spanish club that the 27-year-old forward was stalling contract talks with Chelsea as he is considering a change of scenery.

Eden Hazard himself hinted that a move to Los Blancos would interest him.

“I might be interested in Real Madrid; they know what they have to do,” he revealed.

“I need a project. I still have a project at Chelsea, but if I have a good World Cup things might be easier.”
