- Eden Hazard could seal a move to join Real Madrid in the coming weeks
- The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to join the Galacticos this summer
- Hazard has just one year left on his current contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit
Belgium international Eden Hazard is reportedly close to agreeing personal terms with Real Madrid over a possible move to the Spanish capital this summer.
The 28-year-old, who joined Chelsea from Lille in a deal around £32 million in 2012, has just one more year on his current deal with the club.
He has however been offered an improved contract to extend his stay at the Stamford Bridge, but the attacker turned them down a deal to become the highest-paid player in Premier League history.
According to Daily Mail, both Hazard and Real's representatives made head way for the first time in their negotiations.
While the Independent reports the two parties are close to agreement as the summer window approaches and the deal looks likely to go through.
The publication believes Chelsea might be forced to sell the attacker for about £100 million despite facing two transfer windows ban.
So far this campaign, Hazard has scored 19 goals and 15 assists in all competitions for the Blues - and will have a chance to win silverware when they battle Arsenal in the Europa League final.
Real Madrid on the other hand have promised to back Zinedine Zidane during the summer transfer window as they hope to get the team back to the top.

Los Blancos crashed out of this season's Champions League at the round of 16 stage after losing 5-3 to Ajax on both legs.
They will also finish the season without silverware having lost the league cup to arch rivals Barcelona.
Chelsea already have a contingency plan in place for Hazard's departure with the American Christian Pulisic arriving from Borussia Dortmund this summer for £58m.
But Hazard was coy on his future prospects following Chelsea's passage to the Europa League final.
"I don't think about that. I'm only thinking about winning something for this club and this squad,' Hazard said.
"If it's my last game I will try to do everything for this club to win a trophy. In my mind, I don't know yet."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea edged Eintracht Frankfurt 4-3 on penalties to reach this season's Europa League final.
Both sides played 2-2 aggregate draw after the two legs before deciding the game through the spot kicks.
The Blues will now battle Arsenal in a bid to win their second Europa League title later this month at the Baku Olympic Stadium.
