Can Cristiano Ronaldo be replaced?What's the story?

However, the West London club now faces a hard task of keeping hold of their star player at Stamford Bridge this summer with club talisman Eden Hazard at the top of many top clubs' wish list.

The deal would eclipse that of Kylian Mbappe's move to Paris Saint-Germain, but would not be quite as much of Neymar's mouth-watering transfer from Barcelona.

Ronaldo officially left Real Madrid for Juventus this week after 9 successful seasons at the club, winning 15 major trophies including 4 UEFA Champions League titles - 3 of which have come in the last 3 seasons.

Corriere dello Sport claim Chelsea are battling with Paris St-Germain to sign the Italy worldwide, who has been linked with a move to the Bridge during successive transfer windows.

The Chelsea and Belgium forward has said that he is happy at Chelsea however - but suggested it would be a "dream" to play for Real Madrid.

Eden Hazard really is a blessed footballer!

According to Tomas Andreu of Sport, Hazard is now Barca's main attacking target after they missed out on Antoine Griezmann, and he is interested in the prospect of making the switch to the Camp Nou.

These rumours certainly seem to be gathering momentum with each passing day.

'It's a very easy question for me, he is one of the most complete footballers in the modern game now, ' Martinez added.
