Report: Chelsea demand world-record £200m fee for Eden Hazard

Chelsea have reportedly slapped a price tag of £200m on Eden Hazard amid interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

The 27-year-old Belgian is a rumoured transfer target for both Real Madrid and Barcelona in this summer’s transfer window.

Hazard still has two years left to run on his contract at Stamford Bridge, but cast doubt over his future at the club following Belgium’s win over England at the World Cup.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea will not be letting one of their prized assets leave the club cheaply and know that the price tag, which would be a world record, will act as a deterrent at this stage of the window.

The report also states that Hazard is not pushing for a move, while new Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri is keen to work with him.

Hazard has scored 89 times in 300 appearances for the Blues since his 2012 move from Lille.
