Chelsea FC have been asked to honour their agreement to let Eden Hazard join Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the west London club are braced to face strong interest in Hazard from Real Madrid as the Spanish club finally look to land their man.

The 28-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid for some years now and that speculation has been heightening in recent weeks as the Belgian approaches the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC chiefs promised Hazard last summer that he could leave for Real Madrid if he stayed at Stamford Bridge for another season.

The same article says that Real Madrid are set to increase their rejected opening offer of £67.9m for Hazard.

The story also says that Real Madrid are willing to pay up to £90m to land Hazard this summer as they look to revamp their squad under Zinedine Zidane.

The article claims that Real Madrid could have as much as £420m to spend on new transfers this summer as Zidane aims to rebuild his squad ahead of next season.
