As Gareth Bale continues to be linked with a January move away from Real Madrid, rumours regarding the Welsh winger's replacement have started to surface.


The Metro are reporting that Madrid see Eden Hazard as the perfect replacement for Bale should he depart in a few months time, and the Belgian international has made no secret of his desires to play in Spain.

Chelsea are unlikely to give up their prized asset easily, however, and it would take a near world-record fee if the former Lille winger were to swap England's capital for Spain's.
