Real Madrid Have Agreed A Deal To Sign Eden Hazard From Chelsea

Real Madrid have agreed a deal to sign Eden Hazard from Chelsea.

BeIN Sports claim Hazard is officially a Real Madrid after striking a deal worth £88 million.

The Belgium ace is on the verge of completing a transfer to Real Madrid. He all but confirmed the move following Chelsea's Europa League final victory over Arsenal last week.

"We will decide in a few days and the only target in my mind was to win this final," he said after his side's 4-1 victory in Baku.

"I have made my decision already and now I'm waiting on both clubs.I think it is a goodbye, but in football you never know."

The 28-year-old enjoyed his most prolific spell in England last season. He scored an impressive 21 goals in all competitions, including 16 goals in the Premier League.

When the Hazard deal crosses the line, it'll be Zinedine Zidane's second marque signing of the summer following the £52 million capture of Eintracht Frankfurt's Luka Jovic.

Real Madrid remain in the market for new talent following a dismal last season. Manchester United's Paul Pogba and Tottenham's Christian Eriksen, among others, have also been strongly linked with a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Los Blancos mean business.
