Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea could be set to be dealt a huge double blow on the transfer market, as a European giant plot a swoop for their star-man and also look to secure a deal for a prime attacking target.

The Daily StarĀ states Real Madrid have placed Eden Hazard as their top priority after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus, while the three-time consecutive Champions League winners are also looking to land Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.

Poland international Lewandowski has been named as a top-target for Chelsea as they seek an attacking overhaul, with both Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata linked with an exit, but the plans of Los Blancos could shatter their transfer dreams.

Meanwhile, an exit for Hazard seems increasingly likely after the Belgium international opened the door for an exit when speaking to reporters after his nation’s World Cup victory over England and has previously admitted he would like to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
