Real Madrid to sign Harry Kane to replace Ronaldo

After signing back in 2009 for a then world-record fee, Ronaldo has since won four Champions Leagues and two La Liga titles.

As such, Hazard is now the player apparently in his sights and the one he specifically wants to take over Ronaldo's number seven shirt.

While the Bianconeri chief will meet with Ronaldo, the player's agent, Jorge Mendes, is in talks with the European champions to negotiate his exit.

"It would be fantastic if he made a strike partnership with Gonzalo", he told Sky Sport Italia recently.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Bridge this summer, with Real Madrid reportedly interested in bringing him to the Bernabeu. "If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid, he will be eternally grateful to the club, the president, all the directors, the medical staff, all the staff without exception, as well as all the Madrid fans around the world".

"The victor of Belgium v France will be the firm favourites to win a World Cup that has made for compelling viewing from first to last", he added.

Ronaldo has flirted with a return to Manchester United several times in the past but it was always clear that it was nothing serious and just an attempt at getting a new contract.

And although Zinedine Zidane stepped down after the Champions League final, to be replaced by Julen Lopetegui, Hazard is still open to joining Madrid.

Whether they will get to watch Ronaldo in a Juventus shirt next season still remains to be seen.

Mbappe rejected Real as recently as last summer, reports in Europe now suggest Lewandowski will stay with Bayern Munich and Los Blancos are wary of negotiations with Daniel Levy.
