Hazard set to complete Real Madrid move as Chelsea accept £88m offer

The Belgium international will swap Stamford Bridge for Santiago Bernabeu after a deal was finally struck between the two clubs

Chelsea have accepted a bid of €100 million (£88m/$112m) for forward Eden Hazard from Real Madrid, though the total cost could rise to €140m (£124m/$146m) with add-ons.

Goal can confirm the two clubs have come to a compromise on Hazard’s price following face-to-face talks between Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia and Real Madrid CEO Jose Angel Sánchez in London on Monday, allowing the 28-year-old to make what he has described as a “dream” move.

Hazard is set for a significant pay-rise upon joining Madrid after turning down multiple contract offers from the west London club, and he could be formally unveiled at Santiago Bernabeu next week after he returns from international duty with Belgium.
