Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Real Madrid flop, Eden Hazard, emerged as a top transfer target for new Roma boss Jose Mourinho this summer.
The 30-year-old joined Los Blancos in a deal valued at around €115 million in 2019 but has failed to live up to the huge prize since then - with a series of injuries hampering his performances for them.
He has made just 45 appearances scoring five times and assisting eight other goals after two seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, Mourinho is now hoping to reunite with the Belgian forward having already worked together during the Portuguese's second stint at Chelsea.
Real might be planning to raise funds from Hazard's sale as they are planning to make a move for either PSG star Kylian Mbappe or Borussia Dortmund striker, Erling Haaland this summer.
