Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is reportedly worried that his side's transfer ban has left his dream move to Real Madrid in tatters.
The Blues plan to appeal the two-window suspension handed to them by FIFA for 29 breaches of the rules on the international transfer of minors.
With the transfer window opening later this month, Chelsea are still unsure whether they will be able to further add to their squad once Christian Pulisic completes his switch from Borussia Dortmund.
According to The Sun, that has left Hazard fearing the worst as the West London outfit may not be able to bring in another replacement.
The report suggests that Chelsea will consider keeping the Belgium international for another year, despite the prospect of losing him for free in 2020.
Hazard, who has spent the past seven years at Stamford Bridge, revealed last weekend that Chelsea are aware of his plans amid the ongoing links with Madrid.
