Chelsea will sign Alvaro Morata in a deal that sees Eden Hazard complete a switch to Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

Don Balon, as quoted by the Sun, is reporting that Hazard has agreed personal terms with Real Madrid ahead of a sensational summer move to The Bernabeu.

The same article states that the transfer fee could be in the region of £100m as the Champions League holders look to land a marquee signing ahead of the 2017-18 season.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is thought to be a big admirer of the Belgium international, who helped to fire Chelsea to the Premier League title last season.

According to the same story, the transfer fee could be reduced as Real Madrid would be willing to include Morata as part of the deal to bring Hazard to the Spanish capital.

Chelsea have signed Manchester City reserve goalkeeper Willy Caballero and AS Roma defender Antonio Rudiger in the summer transfer window so far.

The Blues finished seven points clear of closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the title race last season under new manager Antonio Conte.
