Cristiano Ronaldo's departure from Real Madrid to Juventus has left a gaping hole in Los Blancos' squad, and the Spanish giants apparently want to make the Belgium captain their next "Galactico" signing.
According to Sky Sports, Russia international Aleksandr Golovin is close to signing with the Stamford Bridge club. The 22-year-old winger was strongly linked with the London side throughout the 2018 FIFA World Cup, a tournament he flourished in, and his arrival is expected by many.
Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, who is believed to be on Manchester United's radar, could return to the Premier League if talks with new Los Blancos boss Julen Lopetegui do not go well. The Welshman has made it clear he would like to remain in Spain, but his future ultimately does not lie in his hands, say Marca.
The appointment of Maurizio Sarri as Antonio Conte's successor may see the club go on the hunt for yet another Napoli star, this time Belgium international Dries Mertens. According to Football-Italia, the Italian manager is said to be a massive admirer of the 31-year-old, who scored 18 goals in 38 Serie A appearances last season.
Others who could potentially replace Hazard at Stamford Bridge, according to various reports, are Nabil Fekir, Anthony Martial, Hirving Lozano, Leon Bailey and Wilfried Zaha.
