Chelsea indentify Hazard replacement from EPL rivals

Chelsea have earmarked Man United forward Anthony Martial as the ideal replacement for Eden Hazard.

Hazard is widely expected to join Real Madrid this summer in a blockbuster deal worth more than 150m pounds and Chelsea will need to sign a replacement.

Chelsea have only signed Jorginho from Napoli this summer and time is running out to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

The Blues have been heavily linked with a move for United forward Martial all summer and have finally identified the France international as their top candidate to replace Hazard.

Martial has rejected an improved contract from United and his agent has confirmed his client wants to leave Old Trafford after running out of patience with Jose Mourinho.

United are set to trigger their right in Martial’s existing contract to an extra 12 months, which would effectively tie down the 22-year-old until 2020.
