Chelsea are in talks to bring back Eden Hazard, but Real Madrid want Reece James as part of the deal.
Chelsea are apparently in negotiations with Eden Hazard about a stunning return.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, is rumored to desire Reece James in exchange for the Belgian.
According to El Nacional, Blues owner Roman Abramovich believes Hazard, 30, may return to West London and become one of the best players in the world.
And, according to reports, conversations with Real president Florentino Perez have already begun.
Hazard, a Belgian international, is thought to be interested in the move.
The primary stumbling block is the price, with Real paying £135 million for the forward in June 2019.
Chelsea are apparently willing to spend no more than £35 million for him after a string of injuries, a significant drop in form, and his advanced age.
Despite the fact that Madrid views the transfer as a “historic blunder” and a “financial debacle,” Perez is claimed to consider a return to Chelsea as his only option to reclaim part of the massive fee he paid in the first place.

Hazard is regarded as one of Chelsea’s finest players of all time.
At the Bridge, he won two Premier League crowns, two Europa Leagues, and the FA and League Cups.
In 352 appearances with the Blues, the Belgian scored 110 goals and added 92 assists.
He also won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award, the Premier League Player of the Season award, and the FWA Footballer of the Year award in 2015.
Los Blancos are also hoping to take advantage of Hazard’s possible return to Chelsea by signing James, who is 21 years old.
However, they will almost certainly have to pay a considerable sum of money in addition to Hazard if they are to have any hope of completing the transaction.
Dani Carvajal has been plagued by injuries, and Real are in desperate need of a right-back.
Carlo Ancelotti is reported to be a major supporter of England’s best player.
And James, who has only appeared six times in all competitions this season, is apparently becoming irritated.
