It is believed that Perez wants to help new manager Santiago Solari develop an identity within his team.

It was learned that Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi could be a potential alternative if Real failed in their bid to sign the Belgium international.

Hazard has little over 18 months left to run on his current deal at Chelsea.
