Barcelona will prioritise Chelsea ace Eden Hazard over Tottenham creator Christian Eriksen.

With Ronaldo's move to Juventus having been confirmed on Tuesday, Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard is now reportedly at the top of Los Blancos' transfer wish list, along with likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

At just 26-years old, Courtois has his best years ahead of him, and Chelsea are unlikely to sell for a price so low that they couldn't appropriately replace the Belgian with.

Despite declaring that he is now happy with the Blues, it is no secret that Hazard has been harbouring hopes of one day playing for Real Madrid, with the player having flirted with the idea of donning the famed white shirt of the La Liga giants on numerous occasions in the past.

But according to Sport, the Belgium global is one of Barcelona's priority targets and the club made their first approach to Hazard's representatives last week.


Hazard is said to be interested in working with the Blaugrana and the club's coaching staff are already excited by the prospect.

Sport also claim that the Belgian would not demand an astronomical wage and would instead be happy with performance-based incentives in his contract.

Speaking on Monday, Hazard suggested once again that he would be open to joining Real Madrid this summer.

"Zidane is someone special it's true, but I think Real is everyone's dream", he told beIN Sports. "As I've said 100 times before, I'm very happy at Chelsea". "But the blue shirt suits me well, so everything's fine, and staying doesn't bother me".
