Manchester City are ready to launch an astonishing £150 million bid for Chelsea's Eden Hazard, according to the Daily Mirror .

Hazard is currently in a contract deadlock with the Blues, and if that still stands in the summer City will look to rival Real Madrid for the Belgian's signature.

Luis Enrique top of Chelsea's list to replace Conte

It is understood that Conte is set to either resign or be sacked in the coming months, having clashed with the club's players - notably Diego Costa - and hierarchy in recent months.

Chelsea could pull the plug on Dzeko
