Real Madrid are edging towards sealing a deal for Chelsea midfielder Edin Hazard.
The Belgium international’s contract at Stanford Bridge runs down at the end of the next season and he rejected a chance to sign a new deal as he was not happy with the personal terms.
According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, the Champions League winners will land the talented midfielder and have already agreed terms for a potential switch to Real. Hazard will be the La Liga giants’ first signing of the summer transfer window as a direct replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
It is believed that Real have agreed personal terms to a transfer of Hazard to the Bernabéu, but the two clubs are yet to agree on the transfer fee.
Hazard’s Chelsea teammate Thibaut Courtois is also thought to be on the verge of moving to Madrid, with the two clubs reportedly agreeing on a £31m fee for the Belgian.
