Desperate Real Madrid return to Chelsea talks for £200M Hazard

Real Madrid are ready to make a late market mega bid for Chelsea ace Eden Hazard.

Real are reeling after their humiliation by Atletico Madrid in the European Super Cup last night in Tallinn.

The European champions were beaten 4-2 - the first time since former coach Zinedine Zidane's appointment that they'd conceded four goals.

It marked a dismal debut for Zizou's successor, Julen Lopetegui, and Real president Florentino Perez is now under pressure to make a big splash in the transfer market to ease supporter anger.

Reviving plans for Hazard are now on the agenda, though Perez has been reluctant to meet Chelsea's £200m valuation.

However, the president knows for any chance of signing Hazard they will have to make the Belgian their record signing if a deal is to be done.
