Chelsea's Courtois a step closer to joining Real Madrid

The 27-year-old is now in Russian Federation with the FIFA World Cup as Belgium have a third-place spot to win against England but was the standout player for both club and country this season.

There is interest in Daniele Lugani at Juventus, and the CSKA Moscow midfielder Aleksandr Golovin, with AS Roma's Brazil goalkeeper Alisson could be targeted if Thibaut Courtois, into the final 12 months of his contract, is allowed to leave.

"You know my preferred destination", he said.

Speaking on the latest episode of The Transfer Window podcast, he said of Hazard's situation at Chelsea: "They've not given a price because they would be stupid to do so".

Barcelona will prioritise Chelsea ace Eden Hazard over Tottenham creator Christian Eriksen.

They played some of the best football of the tournament, with Hazard at the centre of it all.

Eden Hazard has become Chelsea's knight in shining armour in recent years - but these quotes from the star following his clash against England in the World Cup has thrown his future at the club in serious doubt.

The London club has just announced its new coach, Maurizio Sarri, and a new signing, Jorginho, was initially reluctant to sell the Belgian keeper and repeatedly offered him an improved contract to stay.

"Certainly, after this World Cup, I can decide if I want to stay or go, but Chelsea will have the final decision".

Hazard now has 2 more years left on his contract at Chelsea, but according to the report, the Belgian still hasn't put pen to paper on a £300,000-per-week contract extension, thus prompting people to believe that his move to Madrid might just happen this summer.

He continued: "I'm not going to talk about that (his future) now".
