- Champions League winners Madrid have included Brazil Willian in the deal to land Courtois this summer
- The La Liga outfit are planning to spend close to a £100m for both players after dumping their chase for Hazard
- They are yet to find quality replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Juventus in a mega deal
Spanish League giants Real Madrid have reportedly launched a bid for Chelsea ace Willian in a shocking summer transfer move.
The current Champions League winners were initially planning to sign Eden Hazard in a mega deal to replace Cristiano Ronaldo next term.
However, they have beamed their searchlight on Barcelona target Willian as part of the deal to sign Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois earlier this month.
The Galacticos are prepared to splash a sum of £100 million on the Blues duo this summer as they hope to fortify their squad for competition next term.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail claims the Stamford Bridge side are possibly considering to do business with Los Blancos as the Belgian goalkeeper has just 12 months in his deal.
The same publication claims Barcelona made three bids for the Brazil winger, with the final £55 million offer snubbed by Roman Abramovich’s people.
Chelsea new boss Maurizio Sarri has however insisted that he has no plans to sell any of his star players - which includes Eden Hazard, who has also been linked with Real.
Meanwhile, they will not turn blind eyes to good deal if they got one for any of their players this transfer window.
Nemanja Matic was allowed to join Manchester United for £40m last summer while Diego Costa was offloaded to Atletico Madrid.
And £100m presents a dilemma to the Chelsea hierarchy, who know that the cash could go a long way towards funding moves for a number of Sarri targets including Juventus duo Gonzalo Higuain and Daniele Rugani.
Furthermore, reports coming out of the Stamford Bridge claim that the Blues are willing to keep Courtois until his contract with the club expires next summer.
A decision considered to help the west London club sort out their goalkeeping issues under the new manager.
They have lined up Jordan Pickford as one of the candidates to replace the Real Madrid bound star.
Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel is another important candidate the Blues are looking at as a quality replacement for Courtois.
The Blues poached N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater since the Foxes’ title win in 2016, and are confident of thrashing out a deal for the Denmark international should he be required at the Bridge.
NAIJ.com previously reported that Chelsea's Eden Hazard's interest in Real Madrid appears to be coming to an end with the Spanish giants preferring to give greater responsibility to play-maker Isco, AS reports.
The Belgian star man has been linked with a move to the Europeans champions after Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus this summer.
Chelsea had slapped a £200 million fee on their star man’s head, to ward off interest from Madrid.
