Real Madrid are ready to use Spanish worldwide winger Marco Asensio as bait to help land Eden Hazard during the summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Eden Hazard's move to Real Madrid has been dubbed the "Courtois Plan" as the Spanish giants have reportedly told the Chelsea forward to run down his contract.

And that willingness Real are now showing to offload Asensio may give Spurs renewed encouragement in pursuit of a summer bid for the promising winger.

Following Hazard's most recent quotes, which suggested that he has already made a decision about his future, The Mirror now report that Real Madrid are "confident" of acquiring his signature this summer.

The same article states that Hazard's contract talks with Chelsea FC have stalled to cast doubt on his future at the west London side.

Authorities haven't said if the body located by an underwater camera was Sala or pilot David Ibbotson , the only people on board. Cardiff are reported to be committed to honouring the deal but not until they have been provided with sufficient documentation.

The Beligum global has been linked with a dream move to Real Madrid which could see Isco or Marco Asensio join the Blues.

"For now, the only thing to think about is playing well for Chelsea". It is like I have said a lot of times, if I leave I will be happy, I know if I stay I will be happy'. When I'm in the field, I just want to play.

"Eden is 28. If he wants to go, I think he has to go", he said.

However, the Blues are embroiled in a three-way battle to secure a top-four spot with Arsenal and Manchester United.
