INSIDER: Real Madrid offered €170M-plus for Chelsea pair Hazard, Alonso

Real Madrid made an attempt at a double transfer raid on Chelsea last summer, it has been revealed.

This week, Real are being linked with a January move for Chelsea's flying attacker Eden Hazard.

And Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito de Jugones, revealed Real tried for Hazard and his Blues teammate Marcos Alonso this past summer.

"This summer Real Madrid tried to sign Hazard and Marcos Alonso, but Chelsea always said no," he said. "Real Madrid was willing to offer €170m for Hazard.

"He is a big player."

Real management saw Alonso, meanwhile, as a replacement for veteran wing-back Marcelo.
