Real Madrid have reportedly set an asking price for Eden Hazard as they look to finally get the Belgian international off their wage books this summer.

Things have not gone according to plan for Hazard since making the switch from Chelsea, who has found his time at the Santiago Bernabeu marred with injuries. He has been sidelined with nearly 11 injuries, and has made just 25 LaLiga appearances since joining Zinedine Zidane's side.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Madrid are willing to let the winger leave for just £43 million - two years after signing him for an initial £89 million.

Transfermarkt have claimed that Hazard is only worth £36million, dropping from £135million from the point of his move to the Spanish capital.

Madrid are looking to free up wages to concentrate on bringing on their top two transfer targets: Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland. They are also eyeing up a move for Bayern Munich defender David Alaba.

The club also trying to convince club captain Sergio Ramos, who is the final few months of his contract, to sign an extension. Selling Hazard would free up wages and allow Real Madrid to get these deals over the line.
