Barcelona make first contact with Chelsea's Eden Hazard

Eden Hazard signing for Barcelona isn't only a very real possibility but it's also turned into the main objective for the transfer committee at the club..

The coaching staff are enthusiastic at the chance of bringing in the Belgian star and last week the first contact between Barça and the player's representatives took place. The response was positive as they confirmed that Hazard wants to leave Chelsea this summer and the chance to sign for Barcelona is something which interests the player. The door to a move away is open and now it's time to talk with Chelsea, something which won't be easy.

The idea of signing Hazard has gained momentum following the failure to lure Antoine Griezmann to the Camp Nou. The new sporting department made it clear from the beginning that they should find a new strategy, although the priority remains to bring in someone of the highest level who could help in the middle of the pitch as well as further forward. Hazard became a clear alternative to the French man.

The deal is taking shape due to two key factors: Hazard is one of the few stars that could leave his current club this summer and Barcelona are increasing their transfer budget as they look to offload unwanted squad members. Paulinho's move to China was the one which allowed Barça to make contact with Hazard.
