Chelsea reportedly open talks with Real Madrid over a permanent deal to sign Mateo Kovacic, who is now on a season-long loan at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard, however, will not come cheap and Chelsea may still do all they can to make this transfer tricky for Los Blancos by demanding as much as €170million (£151m) for their star player.

Now on loan in West London from Los Blancos, Kovacic doesn't want to return to the Bernabéu when his temporary Chelsea deal ends in the summer, and the six-time English champions would like the Croatian midfielder to stay on.

Hazard has previously operated at Chelsea under more conservative coaches such as Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte but Kompany, whose City side travel to Stamford Bridge on Friday, insists that Hazard has been unleashed under Sarri.

Kovacic is now approaching the halfway stage of a season-long loan at Chelsea, where he has established himself as an important part of Maurizio Sarri's side.

Manager Maurizio Sarri addressed the issue this week, stating that they are ready to "immediately" agree a new deal.

'When Eden Hazard is on it, I do not believe there is a defender in world football who could live with him, ' said the former Arsenal defender. "I know very well that there are discussions between the club and the manager of Eden every week". "I can't remember him having that a lot in his career".

"So if there is something new, the club will call me immediately".
