Madrid consequently chose to base their team around Isco next season, with Cristiano Ronaldo gone after he signed for Juventus.

If reports in Spain are to be believed then Real Madrid are not desperate to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with a big name signing rather the club has put its faith in existing crop of players, especially Gareth Bale. Hazard though has two years left on his current deal with Chelsea but has stalled contract extension talks worth £300,000 a week.

A fan favourite, set to remain at Chelsea.

The Blues have been heavily linked with moves for Higuain and Daniele Rugani in recent weeks.

In order to further cement Hazard's retention, the Daily Express' Tony Banks writes that manager Maurizio Sarri is set to hand the Belgian the Blues' captaincy this season. In recent weeks though, it's been Hazard who has reportedly become their top target. Hazard's arrival from Chelsea could hamper the duo's progress, with the Belgian likely to be a first-choice forward.

AS reports Lopetegui is ready to shape his team around Isco ahead of the new campaign.

But in a surprising twist in the tale, it now seems as though Real Madrid will give up on their pursuit of Eden Hazard, refusing to pay what they consider to be an exorbitant fee, and focus on the talent already in their squad.

On the United States tour they will have Borja Mayoral and Raul de Tomas, two strikers with potential but they are not yet ready for a prominent role in the team while Vinicius also is only 18 and a player for the future. Several marquee players were earmarked by Real Madrid but all of them resulted in major failures.
