Catalonian newspaper Sport claim that with Eden Hazard open to a move to Real Madrid, Chelsea have been forced into identifying replacements and Nabil Fekir is one of their preferred targets.

Club president Florentino Perez has identified Hazard as the latest Galactico to lead the club moving forward after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The forward has been unable to join the club's pre-season as he is on an extended break following his exploits with Belgium, who finished third at the recently concluded World Cup in Russian Federation.

During this six-year period, the Belgian global got noted as one of the best players, not just in the Premier League but across Europe as well. It could be a reminder to Real Madrid of the success they have met with the Costa Rican in goals.

"We've been waiting for him for a long time because he conquered us with his dribbles and his plays, and now he's here".
