Eden Hazard is on course to seal his dream move to Real Madrid this summer.
Chelsea have already accepted that their star man will not be signing a new contract, and with just over 12-months left on his deal they won’t allow him to move on a free transfer in 2020.
Hazard is hoping the deal will be finalised by the end of the season, as he does not want it running into the summer.
Chelsea are hoping they will bank £100million from the Hazard deal, and Real coach Zinedine Zidane has never hidden his desire to land the Belgian star.
“I will not give my personal opinion about what may happen because the season has not ended, but I’ve always appreciated him,” said Zidane.
“I’ve seen him a lot since he was playing in France. He’s fantastic.”
Real Madrid are now rated as short as 3/10 to land Hazard this summer, and sources close to Chelsea have told us they see the deal as when rather than if it will happen.
