EDEN HAZARD reckons Real Madrid star Isco will join Chelsea.
The Spain key man has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu this time out.
Isco has been in and out of Zinedine Zidane’s starting line-up this season.
The 25-year-old has started 18 La Liga games this campaign, but Isco is struggling to get a run of games at Real under the Frenchman.
And according to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, who often make sensational transfer claims, Isco could be heading to Chelsea.
They say the Blues want the Real ace to replace Hazard at Stamford Bridge, with the Belgium international likely to head to the Bernabeu this summer.
And Hazard is aware of Chelsea’s transfer plan, with the winger informing his Blues team-mate Thibaut Courtois of the potential deal.
Diario Gol add that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to spend big at the end of the season after a disappointing campaign under Antonio Conte.
The Blues crashed out of the Champions League last week, while their chances of finishing in the Premier League top four is in severe doubt.
However, Conte’s men still have the FA Cup to focus on, with Chelsea facing Southampton in the semi-finals next month.
