Chelsea owner Roman Abrahimovic will use the funds from the sale of Eden Hazard to Barcelona to purchase Monaco star Kylian Mbappe.
Eden Hazard has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona as a potential replacement for want away star forward Neymar. The Brazilian is set to complete a world record move of £196m to French Ligue 1 side PSG, with Hazard targeted as a replacement according to reports coming from Spain.
Spanish outlet Don Balon claim that, should Hazard leave, the Blues may join the race for Mbappe. It is said Abramovich is a fan of the 18-year-old, and he could be tempted to join Real and City in the race for his signature.
However, fresh claims suggest Monaco are now demanding a huge £178million to part with their star asset.
Speaking back in June, Blues legend Tony Cascarino named Mbappe as the player he would most like his former club to sign this summer.
