The Belgium stopper has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid.

But in a surprising twist in the tale, it now seems as though Real Madrid will give up on their pursuit of Eden Hazard, refusing to pay what they consider to be an exorbitant fee, and focus on the talent already in their squad.

Premier League outfit Chelsea are reportedly considering a £100 million (R1.73 million) bid from Real Madrid for two Blues stars.

Chelsea are thought to be "seriously" considering the offer, which would surely match our valuations of the near 30-year-old and goalkeeper who will be available on a Bosman next year.

In order to further cement Hazard's retention, the Daily Express' Tony Banks writes that manager Maurizio Sarri is set to hand the Belgian the Blues' captaincy this season.

But according to Italian outlet Corriere della Sera, Chelsea are now focusing most of their energy on a different Juventus star.

Real have been frequently credited with interest in Courtois and with the Belgium global having just one year remaining on his contract, a deal could potentially be reached in the coming days.

Chelsea have reportedly submitted a second offer for the centre-back, expected to be around £40m.

Jordan Pickford is a wanted man.

He told Chelsea's official website: "It has been a whirlwind 24 hours".

A bid of £100m might not even be enough to persuade Chelsea to part with the duo, with so little time left in the window to replace them.
