REAL MADRID are rethinking their plan to purchase Eden Hazard from Chelsea because of his recent poor form, according to reports.
The Belgium international has been touted as Real’s top target in the summer as they undergo a major squad revamp.
Los Blancos chief Florentino Perez is keen on ushering in a new era of Galacticos, with Hazard designed to be the poster boy.
The 27-year-old has yet to commit his future to Chelsea and is waiting to see how they do in the Premier League.
The Blues are struggling this season and after their loss to Tottenham they are now eight points adrift of the top four.
Premier League champions Chelsea have won just five games out of 19, and Hazard’s from has tailed off.
And as a result, the Madrid outfit have not come knocking for the former Lille forward as expected.
The London Evening Standard report that the Bernabeu club have yet to make any form of enquiry for Hazard.
They also go on to report that Hazard’s representatives have yet to seek a move out.
He has already stated that he will sort his future out after the World Cup this summer.
He said: “I am going to play the World Cup and then I will leave on holiday. Then we will see what happens next.
“I do not think about it (his future) yet. I have another two years on my contract with Chelsea, where I am very happy.”
Chelsea had hoped to have talks wrapped up by the end of the season.
But Hazard wants a strong showing in this year’s World Cup to strengthen his bargaining position.
