Real Madrid transfer revelation made by Spanish expert about Tottenham and Chelsea | Football | Sport

It had been thought the La Liga giants were targeting one or the other in the summer to try and kickstart the club back into life.

Real Madrid are languishing down in fifth in the table – 10 points behind Barcelona.

But Spanish football expert Graham Hunter believes a double deal could be on the cards as both could now fit into their team.

“It’s evidently true that both Eden Hazard and Christian Eriksen appeal to Real Madrid,” he said on the Transfer Talk podcast.

“Having watched them for sometime, while Eden Hazard could possibly move inside and perform a little like Eriksen does, I would argue that you could argue both players in a Real Madrid team – no question at all.

“The barrier previously, apart from Chelsea being unwilling to sell Eden Hazard, that for a couple of seasons now it’s looked rather impossible to fit Eden Hazard into a Real Madrid team where Isco and Marco Asensio are both flourishing.

“Right now, the club aren’t backing him, the fans are giving him grief and there’s a market for Isco.

“While I don’t see Isco leaving Real Madrid leaving in January – that would be something of a surprise – his time at Real Madrid seems to be coming to an end.

“Secondly, Asensio’s progress has been somewhat stunted. The concept of him being challenged for his place, or sitting on the bench if Eden Hazard was bought, that seemed impossible before but it doesn’t now.

“The conditions of being bought by Real Madrid have probably changed and are probably more attractive for Hazard.

“Were Real Madrid able to persuade both the London clubs, were Hazard and Eriksen in the Real Madrid team, not only would it be feasible tactically but it would be something they could do with right now with the way they have been playing.”

Real Madrid return to La Liga action on Sunday when they travel to Real Betis (7.45pm kick-off).
