Marca report on Tuesday that Real Madrid’s desire to sign Eden Hazard has taken a back seat. That’s because Isco is on the verge of renewing and Marco Asensio has shown he’s a big part of Madrid’s future, and can’t be overlooked in the present.
This has slowed things down on Hazard, explain Marca, which is a boost to Chelsea and their hopes of keeping the player. Had Madrid come in with a €100m+ offer then Hazard’s head would quite possibly have been turned, but Marca feel that’s now unlikely.
Isco’s decision to snub Liverpool and Manchester City, with Marca claiming both met with the player’s father, has led to a lack of places available for Hazard.
Set to double his money on a contract until 2022, Isco is said to have been edging towards a Premier League move, with Liverpool and Manchester City making the efforts, but things have changed recently.
Marca state Asensio’s development and Isco’s renewal could mean James Rodriguez leaves this summer, and Asensio is even seen as a long term threat to Gareth Bale.
Rodriguez and Bale can be the next rumours then.
