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