A report claims that Real Madrid may use Eden Hazard in a player-plus-cash bid to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe next year.

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to cut their losses with Eden Hazard and use the Belgian forward as a makeweight to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.

Hazard has been a major flop since arriving in the Spanish capital from Chelsea last year for a fee that could exceed £150m.

The 29-year-old has been hampered by injury and fitness issues, restricting him to 25 starts in all competitions since the beginning of 2019-20.

According to Spanish TV programme El Chiringuito, Madrid want to get Hazard off their books next year and have devised a plan to help them achieve that.

Los Blancos are strongly rumoured to have made PSG forward Mbappe their top target for 2021 and hope that Hazard, plus a sizeable transfer fee, can persuade the Parisians to cash in.

Hazard is not expected to feature again for Madrid before the New Year after injuring his hamstring in last weekend's La Liga defeat to Alaves.
