Manchester City are ready to sanction a stunning £150million bid for Eden Hazard, according to reports.
Pep Guardiola missed out on the signing of Alexis Sanchez, with Manchester United swooping in to land him from Arsenal.
And he is still targeting an elite-level attacking player.
The Mirror report City will move for Hazard in the summer, because, at two years the Chilean’s junior, he would represent better value.
Despite an injury to Gabriel Jesus, the Premier League leaders insisted they weren’t prepared to match United’s offer for Sanchez.
However, Guardiola has hinted he is prepared to change his stance.
City have by far the best squad in the Premier League, and appear to be running away with the title as they hold a 12-point lead over the Red Devils.
But, Jesus’ injury had left with them with just Sergio Aguero in attack, so it is one area they are quite light in.
Hazard has been long-term target for Real Madrid, whose manager Zinedine Zidane was the Belgian’s childhood idol.
Los Blancos are planning a major summer revamp and are ready to make an attempt for the Chelsea ace.
