Marco Asensio could sign for Chelsea as part of Eden Hazard Deal
Adopted from: readchelsea.com
Published: 6th December 2018
Marco Asensio could move to Chelsea as part of the deal to take Eden Hazard to Real Madrid, it is being claimed.
According to Onda Madrid, as cited on El Partido de la Una, Real Madrid would be willing to include the Spaniard if Mateo Kovacic’s permanent transfer to Stamford Bridge does not go through.
It has already been suggested that the Croatian is likely to be offered to Chelsea as part of the deal in a bid to lower the Blues’ asking price for Hazard.
However, it remains to be seen what the future lies for Kovacic, with talks underway over a potential deal.
Should Chelsea and Real fail to come to an agreement regarding Kovacic, Asensio is the man likely to come into the equation.
Hazard is said to have agreed terms over a move to the Bernabeu at the end of the season, bringing an end to his six-year stay in London.
