Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard is free to leave Real Madrid when the transfer window reopens in January.
The Belgian joined the European champions from Chelsea for £100 million three years ago but has hardly impressed for them.
He is currently out-of-favour under manager Carlo Ancelotti and Marca cite that Madrid want to offload him as soon as possible.
Hazard’s contract does not expire until June 2024, but Madrid are open to offloading him for a cut-price fee this winter.
Chelsea have already ruled out a reunion with the Belgian, but Newcastle United could end up as possible destination.
The Magpies are currently third in the Premier League with 27 points and could spend further at the start of the New Year.
Champions League qualification is a genuine possibility and they could attempt to land Hazard on an initial loan deal.
Arsenal have also been linked with him in the past. He could provide a boost to their pursuit of the Premier League title this term.
