Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has further fuelled speculation that Eden Hazard is set for a summer switch to the LaLiga giants.

Sergio Ramos has fuelled speculation that Eden Hazard is to join Real Madrid this summer, after Los Blancos' captain starting following the star on Instagram.

Hazard heavily tipped to join Real Madrid this summer

As was revealed by AS earlier this month, Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has given the thumbs-up to the close-season signing of the Chelsea forward, with the two clubs thought to be moving towards agreeing a deal for the 28-year-old.

Belgian out of contract at Chelsea summer after next

Chelsea are understood to be after around 115 million euros for Hazard, while Madrid value the ex-Lille player at more like 80 million or 90 million euros - not least because he will be available on a free at the end of next season.

In addition to Hazard's June 2020 contract expiry, Chelsea's on-field situation is also a factor pushing the Belgian towards the Bernabéu: having had to settle for Europa League football this season, he is eager to be back on the Champions League stage next term, but the Blues are far from guaranteed qualification for the continent's premier club competition.
