Eden Hazard lined up for shock Galatasaray transfer with Real Madrid open to selling former Chelsea star | The Sun
EDEN HAZARD is a shock transfer target for Turkish giants Galatasaray, reports suggest.
The 31-year-old has failed to fire since joining Real Madrid from Chelsea in 2019 for £103million.
And he is now being lined up for a switch to Turkey, according to Turkish newspaper Fotomac.
Galatasaray are currently claimed to be preparing an offer for Hazard.
The club are also reported to be optimistic about their chances of signing the forward.
Hazard himself is not thought to be planning on leaving Real, but the club are open to selling if a suitable offer arrives.

The winger was handed a new role by Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti in the weekend's win over Almeira.
He starred while playing through the middle alongside Karim Benzema in the 2-1 comeback win.
But Galatasaray are looking to continue a good transfer window by bringing in the Belgian international.
Their business includes signing Lucas Torreira from Arsenal and Dries Mertens from Napoli.

Former Fenerbahce club chief Hasan Cetinkaya said on Hazard: "He had incredible sympathy for Fenerbahce and gave me his word: 'Hasan, one day I'll play for Fenerbahce, I just do not know when that will be."
