Eden Hazard is yet to join Real Madrid, and it’s in part because FC Barcelona are competing for his signature, according to Radio Monte Carlo.

The source says that Chelsea are feeling more and more resigned to losing both of their star Belgians, Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, to Real Madrid.

The interest between Hazard and Madrid is said to be mutual, but los blancos have not been able to come to any agreement with the Blues. And, another team has joined “the dance,” says RMC: Barcelona.

Questions remain as to how Barça would fit Hazard into a side that already includes new signing Malcom alongside Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembélé, Luis Suárez, and a chap called Lionel Messi.

Regardless, Barcelona do see the need for at least one more signing, and they are raising funds via sales.

Can Barcelona truly compete for this signature, or are they simply trying to make matters complicated for their rivals?
