What will be the outcome? Chelsea vs Arsenal
Real prepare world record Hazard move. Real Madrid’s interest in Eden Hazard has not dimmed even though the Premier League transfer window has closed.
Despite Chelsea’s inability to buy a replacement, the Express claim Los Blancos will table a bid closer to £200m — up from their previous valuation of £150m.
The Belgian is stalling in negotiations over a £300,000-per-week deal at Stamford Bridge, providing the Spaniards extra encouragement.
Hazard assisted the third goal for Pedro as Maurizio Sarri’s side thrashed Huddersfield 3-0 on the opening weekend of the Premier League. He appears settled in London for the time being.

Welbeck, 27, has traditionally played in more advanced positions during his career.

Emery has been toying with using the England international as a left-back.
