Chelsea FC agree fee to sell Eden Hazard to Real Madrid – report
Chelsea FC are prepared to sell Eden Hazard to Real Madrid in a £115m deal this summer, according to a report
Chelsea FC have agreed to sell Eden Hazard in a £115m deal to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.
The Sun, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich has intervened to sanction the sale of the Belgium international.
The same article states that the Russian businessman got involved to ensure the 28-year-old secured his dream move to the Spanish capital.
According to the same story, Real Madrid will pay £100m up front before Chelsea FC receive a further £15m in add-ons for the Belgian star.
The report goes on to add Hazard is set to earn £400,000-a-week at The Bernabeu, which is £100,000 more than Chelsea FC were willing to offer.
Hazard has been regularly linked with a move to Real Madrid over the past few seasons but a transfer to the Spanish giants failed to materialise.
To his credit, the Belgium international has remained one of the west London side’s most consistent performers despite two difficult seasons under Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri.
Hazard won the Premier League twice during his spell at Stamford Bridge but the Belgian forward has been unable to get his hands on the Champions League trophy.
