Staying in London would mean the Belgium star would not be in the Champions League this season and he looks set to move to the European champions

Real Madrid are still likely to land Eden Hazard after completing the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus according to the bookmakers.

The Portugal star moved to the Serie A champions for €100m (£88m) and the European champions could turn to Chelsea to find his replacement.

SportPesa offer just 20/33 (1.61) that Hazard swaps London for Madrid after spending six years at the Blues and winning two Premier League titles.

That price has drifted somewhat though, with the same firm initially making the transfer just a 1/4 (1.25) shot. While the move still seems more likely to happen than not, the shift in those prices indicates some doubt over whether the blockbuster transfer will come to fruition.

The 27-year-old has been a target of Los Blancos before but with Ronaldo leaving for pastures new, a move to the Spanish capital looks more likely than in previous windows.

"After six wonderful years at Chelsea it might be time to discover something different," said the forward after Belgium's win over England in the World Cup third place play-off.

However, nothing in football is certain and SportPesa price Hazard staying at Chelsea at 11/10 (2.10) ahead of the new season and playing under his seventh permanent manager there. That's been cut from 2/1 (3.0) in recent days.

Maurizio Sarri was recently confirmed as the new Blues boss and that could play a part in whether the Belgium superstar stays in the English capital.

Real Madrid 20/33 (1.61)
To stay at Chelsea 11/10 (2.10)
Paris Saint-Germain 14/1 (15.00)
Barcelona 20/1 (21.0)
Manchester City 33/1 (34.0)

Similarly, Real Madrid are also under new management in Julen Lopetegui, who infamously agreed to join Los Blancos just days before the World Cup started and was fired by Spain on the eve of their first match.

Real’s reported pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain stars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar could also have an impact, although with the pair likely to remain in Paris, SportPesa offer 14/1 (15.0) that Hazard moves to PSG this summer.

The online bookmaker also goes 20/1 (21.0) that Barcelona swoop for Hazard, with Manchester City out at 33/1 (34.0) and cross-city rivals United at 40/1 (41.0).
