Real Madrid have agreed to a £170million deal to sign Chelsea star Eden Hazard, according to Le10 Sport (h/t Mirror).
The report claims that the Spanish giants have been looking for a Cristiano Ronaldo replacement and that Chelsea and Real have now come to terms about a deal for the 27-year-old Hazard.
The report from Le10 Sport also claims that the £170million fee agreed between the clubs also includes the fee for Thibaut Courtois, another Belgian who has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.
Hazard had openly stated that he could be looking for a move away from Chelsea this season after spending six years at the club. The Belgian he has only a couple of years left on his current deal with the Blues.
RMC Sport have done their bit too as they claim that personal terms between Real and Hazard have been completed.
The Belgian was one of the best players during the World Cup and it will be a big loss for us if we cannot keep him this season.
We require the best players to stay at the club and with Maurizio Sarri also taking over, we need Hazard to lead our attack in the upcoming campaign.
Unfortunately, it seems like he is inching closer to a move away but Sarri can still do a bit of magic. The Italian needs to convince Hazard that his future is still at Chelsea and the team can achieve great things with the Belgian on board.
The sale of Courtois and Hazard would really hamper our side ahead of the season as we would lose two world-class players.
