Cristiano Ronaldo's reported move to Juventus is nearing and Real Madrid are wasting no time weighing up their options regarding a replacement with Eden Hazard emerging as the latest contender.

AS report that Paris Saint-Germain's star duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe remain Madrid's top targets, but Hazard is now listed as "Plan C."

Hazard is yet to sign a new contract at Chelsea, along with Belgium teammate Thibaut Courtois, citing that the club need to be more ambitious.

The winger upstaged Neymar during Belgium's 2-1 World Cup quarterfinal win over Brazil, and Real Madrid have history in signing players based on the tournament, bringing in James Rodriguez following his performances in 2014.
