The Possible Exchange Between Chelsea and Real Madrid

The Possible Exchange Between Chelsea and Real Madrid


Los Blancos are targeting two Chelsea stars for the next transfer window. Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois are in Florentino Pérez’s agenda but the signing of both stars would be very hard because both are happy with Antonio Conte. For this reason, Real Madrid could offer James Rodríguez and Álvaro Morata in exchange.

According to the British newspaper Daily Mail, Los Blancos could offer James and Morata to get Courtois and Hazard. Chelsea tried to sign Álvaro Morata from Juventus in the last summer, but Real Madrid had the priority option to get the Spanish striker. Morata is not having many minutes with Zinedine Zidane and Karim Benzema is still the first option in the attacking line, so Morata could think on moving to another big club. If Diego Costa finally leaves the Blues, there will be room for another striker.

Something similar happens with James Rodríguez. The Colombian playmaker is on the bench in the most important games of the season and he wants to play more. Chelsea could be a perfect fit, especially if Hazard leaves. The Colombian has many offers on the table and he has to decide which club prefers or if he still wants to fight for a position with Zidane.

These two interesting players could open Abramovich door. Chelsea were not willing to sell any stars in the summer because they’ve just started a successful project. Antonio Conte is doing a great job in London and most of the players want to continue one year more and play the Champions League with the Italian coach.

Actually, both Hazard and Courtois said several times that they are happy in London and they’re not thinking on moving yet. However, if Chelsea want to reinforce the team with two Los Blancos stars, they might need to sell some of their best players. So the possible exchange Chelsea-Real Madrid could be possible in the next transfer window.
