Chelsea forward Eden Hazard is set to sign for Real Madrid and his move to Los Blancos will be sealed in the coming days.
The three parties – Chelsea, Madrid and the player himself – are close to reaching a total agreement and the Belgium international will soon travel to Madrid, where he will stay for the next six seasons.
As MARCA has learned, Zinedine Zidane gave his approval for the transfer last week after taking into consideration the needs of Madrid’s current squad.
The Frenchman is fond of Hazard’s skills, including his pace and speed, all characteristics that the current side lack.
Madrid first approached the Blues last summer as they looked to acquire the 28-year-old, but Chelsea asked for 200 million euros and Los Blancos withdrew their interest.
