Eden Hazard’s move to European giants Real Madrid is close to being completed, according to reports in Spain.
Madrid, who have been been closely pursuing the Chelsea star for years after shining on a consistent basis in the Premier League, are still looking to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with a stellar signing.
And according to Spanish publication Marca, Madrid will complete the signing of 28-year-old Belgian international Hazard on a six-year deal ‘in the coming days’.
They also report that Hazard, who is getting ready for Chelsea’s Premier League encounter at home to West Ham on Monday, is ready to travel to Madrid to explore possible homes in the Spanish capital.
Zinedine Zidane believes the winger can have a big impact on Madrid’s fortunes as they look to topple Barcelona once again and fight for the Champions League title next campaign.
Hazard has enjoyed yet another good season and has continued to scare defences both in the Premier League and the Europa League.
Hazard has scored 14 goals and provided his Chelsea team-mates with 12 assists in 31 Premier League matches.
And Maurizio Sarri will be hoping that Hazard continues his fine form for the run-in as they look to secure a Champions League spot for next campaign.
The Blues currently sit fifth, one point below the top four, and will play Slavia Prague in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
