Chelsea have reportedly agreed to sell Eden Hazard to Real Madrid for £115million, with the Belgian star set to sign a deal worth £400,000 per week.
The Blues have endured rumours of Hazard’s potential move away from the club, with Hazard being linked with a move to the Spanish capital for some time, and confirmed at the end of the season that he had already decided his future.
It is widely expected that the Belgian will form a key part of Zinedine Zidane’s squad overhaul at Los Blancos and according to the Sun, a fee has now been agreed for the 28-year-old.
Club president Florentino Perez told the Sun: ‘We are working on a project to make people dream again, where we recover our hunger and ambition. I have already lived through this stage before.
‘I have a dream that Hazard will arrive this year. Let’s make a good team this year.
‘I am very interested in him coming to Real Madrid and I am very hopeful that he will come this year. He’s one of the great footballers.
‘Last year we wanted him, but this year he only has one year left on his contract and it is easier.’
The report details that Chelsea will receive £100m with a possible further £15m in add-ons for the former Lille player.
Hazard is currently with the Chelsea squad in Baku as they make their final preparations for Wednesday night’s Europa League final.
The Blues finished the season on a high after securing Champions League football next season with a third placed finish.
But the club are eyeing silverware after missing out on the Carabao Cup to Manchester City in February, and Hazard told Sportsmail that he is putting his future to one side while the club fight for Europa League glory.
‘I just want to win the trophy. It does not matter if I score or not,’ he said earlier this week.
‘Of course I can put aside (the speculation). How long do you know me now? You know how I am. I stay in that mode: thinking about football. After the final we see what happens.’
