Chelsea FC star Eden Hazard on verge of agreeing terms with Real Madrid – report
Eden Hazard is close to agreeing personal terms with Real Madrid ahead of his proposed move from Chelsea FC, say reports
Eden Hazard is on the verge of agreeing personal terms with Real Madrid ahead of his proposed move to Spain from Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Independent is reporting that the 28-year-old is edging ever nearer towards a move to the Bernabeu as the summer transfer window draws nearer.
According to the same story, Hazard is “determined” to join Real Madrid this summer and he has so far rebuffed Chelsea FC’s attempts to get him to sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge.
The same article says that Chelsea FC are preparing to play “hardball” over a transfer fee and will demand at least £100m to sell Hazard this summer.
However, Chelsea FC have “reluctantly” accepted that Hazard is likely to leave Stamford Bridge for Real Madrid this summer, according to the story.
It is claimed in the same story that although negotiations between the two clubs have not been altogether smooth ahead of the summer transfer window, both sides are hoping to get a deal done quickly.
The article also claims that Chelsea FC’s transfer ban is unlikely to affect Hazard’s proposed move, with Christian Pulisic set to join the Blues from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.
Hazard will be hoping to help Chelsea FC win the Europa League when they take on Arsenal in the final in Baku on 29 May.
