Manchester United believe they can beat Real Madrid to Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard by offering a British transfer record bid of £90million.

The Belgian winger still has two-and-a-half years to run his existing deal at Stamford Bridge but he rejected Chelsea’s last offer of close to £300,000-a-week and the club’s heirachy fear he craves a new challenge.

The 26-year-old move to the Blues from Lille in 2012 and spent two-and-half seasons under Jose Mourinho, winning the PFA player of the year award in the Portuguese boss’ last full campaign in west London.

Hazard clashed with Mourinho before his sacking in December 2015 but the pair remain on good terms and United have the financial clout to rival Real Madrid for his signature.

Zinedine Zidane has made no secret of his admiration for the Belgium international but United are said to be confident of rivalling the La Liga giants for Hazard by offering a £90m, according to the Sun.

United broke the world transfer record to sign Paul Pogba in an £89m deal in 2016, though Neymar’s move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer has relegated the Frenchman’s move to a British transfer record.

Chelsea’s preference is to keep Hazard and they’re willing to make him the best paid player in the club’s history. However, should the Belgian push to leave they would rather sell him abroad than to a Premier League rival.

However, Chelsea’s board overruled Antonio Conte last summer by allowing Nemanja Matic to move to Old Trafford in a £35m deal and could do the same should United produce a better financial package than Madrid.
