Big news coming from the British islands. According to The Sun, Real Madrid are going to offer Gareth Bale in swap for Chelsea's Eden Hazard. The report also indicates that Los Blancos have begun talks over Hazard with Chelsea FC.

Although José Mourinho himself ruled out Real's interest in the Belgian star, Zidane's quotes in which he said Hazard was one of the top three best players in the world started this rumor mill that will not stop any time soon. Furthermore, Gareth Bale is also reportedly on Chelsea's radar if Real Madrid finally decide to part ways with the Welsh attacker.

However, these swaps don't work very often. It's always very hard to find a match between what both clubs want, and Chelsea would probably ask for money as well given that Hazard just won the PFA Player of the Year Award. It would be extremely surprising to see this kind of deal getting done, so take this rumor with a grain of salt.
