Despite having a year left on his current deal with the Blues, Hazard is still expected to depart the west London club this summer.

Meanwhile, Madrid have already completed their first big money move after Luka Jovic joining from Eintracht Frankfurt for £60 million.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Belgium international Eden Hazard is 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.
