Chelsea have informed Real Madrid they're prepared to do business over the sale of Eden Hazard.

With the Belgium international continuing to stall on signing a new contract, Chelsea are ready to end negotiations and put the midfielder up for sale this summer, says El Chiringuito TV.

Their well-connected pundits are reporting Chelsea have informed Real they're willing to discuss terms over Hazard - but only if Gareth Bale is included in their offer.

There is talk of a straight swap - similar to Arsenal's deal with Manchester United which saw Alexis Sanchez and Henrikh Mkhitaryan swap clubs without any cash changing hands.

However on their side, it's understood Chelsea will demand Real add a cash component to their proposal.
