Ramos tells Real Madrid president Perez: Do NOT sign this Chelsea star...

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has urged president Florentino Perez to pull BACK from negotiations for Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

With AS Monaco whizkid Kylian Mbappe set to stay in France this season, Hazard has emerged as a potential alternative signing for Perez.

The Belgium international has been a long-term target for Real coach Zinedine Zidane and both he and Perez see an opportunity to bring the midfielder to Madrid this month.

However, Diario Sport says Ramos, having caught wind of the plan, has spoken to Perez urging a rethink.

With Isco now firmly established in midfield and the emergence of Marco Asensio, Ramos has warned Perez that Hazard's arrival would cause trouble for the dressing room.

Having endured the problems around James Rodriguez, now with Bayern Munich, last season, the captain believes they're inviting the same into the locker room should Hazard arrive.
