Eden Hazard is closing in on his dream move to Real Madrid after a sensational £130m fee was agreed with Chelsea.
That figure includes bonuses that Chelsea believe Hazard will meet during his tenure with the Spanish giants.
Personal terms are believed to be a formality for Hazard to sort with Real and a contract is ready to be signed by the 28-year-old.
Hazard admitted after the Europa League final that he was set to depart Chelsea after seven years at Stamford Bridge.
‘I think it’s a goodbye, but in football you never know. My dream was to play in the Premier League, I did it for seven years. Maybe now it’s time for a new challenge,’ Hazard said.
He arrives at the Santiago Bernabeu as manager Zinedine Zidane’s No 1 target in his summer overhaul.
Zidane has already signed striker Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt but sealing a deal for Hazard was his main priority.
Real finished third in La Liga, 19 points behind winners Barcelona.
And Zidane, in his second spell as manager of Real, is planning a summer of upheaval to usher in a new era of success at the club. — Daily Mail.
