It's a never-ending story. Real Madrid will reportedly try to sign Chelsea's Eden Hazard this summer and the London-based club will listen to offers, according to MARCA.

Here's their report:

[...]Blues director Marina Granovskaia is said to have told the winger that they wouldn't reject a future advance from Madrid out of hand, and are thus making fresh moves to keep the man who stuck around during a terrible spell for both club and player last season.

Roman Abramovich is reportedly willing to put 200 million euros into the transfer kitty this summer to convince Hazard that the London giants are intent on challenging for both the Premier League and Champions League in years to come.

James Rodriguez, Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata, and Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko are all names being bandied about at Stamford Bridge as they attempt to make their own big money signings.

Real Madrid do not need Eden Hazard with the current roster. In fact, players like Marco Asensio, Isco or James Rodriguez could all play on Hazard's favorite spot on the left wing but are usually on the bench because that's Ronaldo's spot to lose. Madrid should probably try to improve other areas of their roster instead.
