Chelsea slash asking price for Eden Hazard

Chelsea have slashed the asking price for Eden Hazard.

With just over a year to run on his current deal and Hazard talking openly about an ambition of playing for Real Madrid, there's a resignation that he will eventually leave this summer.

And the Independent says Chelsea are now prepared to consider a realistic price for the Belgian.

Originally seeking €250m, Blues management are now prepared to negotiate from a starting point of €100m.

Just this week, Hazard stated: "I know what I am going to do. I have made a decision."
