Chelsea FC are set to sell Eden Hazard in a £170m deal to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, according to a report in France.

French media outfit Le10Sport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that los Blancos are on the verge of signing the Belgium international in the current transfer window.

The same article states that Real Madrid have stepped up negotiations with Chelsea FC and have reached an initial agreement with the Premier League side.

According to the same story, the Champions League winners have already held talks with Hazard’s father over a proposed contract at los Blancos.

The Blues are facing a battle to keep their number 10 at Stamford Bridge this summer following a disappointing 2017-18 season.

Hazard is facing the prospect of missing out on Champions League football next season unless the Belgian star leaves the west London side.

The 27-year-old will be loathe to miss out on another season in the Champions League after the Blues failed to qualify for the competition twice in the past three seasons.

Maurizio Sarri took over the reins of the Stamford Bridge outfit from Antonio Conte last week to usher in a new era at Chelsea FC.
