REAL MADRID are preparing to offer Gareth Bale – PLUS £100million – to tempt Chelsea into parting with Eden Hazard. The Spanish giants have made Hazard their No1 target for the summer. Hazard is stalling on signing a lucrative new contract at Stamford Bridge, which is being interpreted as a clear sign that Hazard wants a move to Real Madrid. The Spanish giants are set to overhaul their squad after falling 20 points behind Barcelona this season. They are also set to part company with head coach Zinedine Zidane, who Hazard is known to be keen to work with. Manchester United have wanted Bale for the last two seasons but his former club Tottenham have first option – even though a deal is likely to be out of reach for all but the richest clubs.
