"I know what I am going to do".

Madrid will not pay the 250 million euros Chelsea want but they could reach a deal with Hazard's contract expiring in 2020. His solid performances though, seem to be attracting the interest of other clubs once again, with Chelsea interested in signing him in the summer, as per Daily Mail.

Rumors have surrounded the Belgian star for months, strongly linking him to La Liga power Real Madrid.

Wizards acquire Parker and Portis from Bulls
I had reported last week that Bobby Portis was being shopped and everyone saw the writing on the walls with Jabari Parker . In his sophomore campaign, Portis won SEC Player of the Year, averaging 17.5 points and 8.9 rebounds per game.

This week, Hazard revealed that he has made a decision on his future and, with no apparent progess in contract talks between the Belgium global and the Premier League club, who are offering him 15.6m euros a year, speculation is rife that this could well mean he is heading to the Bernabéu at the end of the season.

Should Hazard leave, Chelsea would need to snap up a replacement and Richarlison could be an option with the 21-year-old having been on the club's radar since he started his career in his homeland with Fluminense.

Chelsea are reportedly considering Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard.

May is now discussing "alternative arrangements" to the backstop with members of her own party. It must be how, together, we move forwards to shape the opportunities of the future".

Hazard is said to have been left in limbo and may have to wait until deep into the summer before Madrid make their move, depending on whether PSG's stance alters.

"I said a few weeks ago that I thought it was the beginning of the end after what we had seen at Chelsea, the win [over Huddersfield] doesn't change my mind". A player may well want out but while they are under contract here, Marina Granovskaia will do everything in her power to either keep them or negotiate a tasty transfer fee.
