Real Madrid have reportedly agreed personal terms with Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard. The 28-year-old Belgian attacker’s contract runs out at Stamford Bridge in 2020, and Chelsea are ready to sell him if they cannot tie him down to a new deal.
However, Chelsea will not let Hazard go easily. The Premier League club value the attacking midfielder at around 170m euros, a fee that Madrid – who are thought to be eyeing a part-exchange deal involving Mateo Kovacic – would not be willing to shell out for a player entering the final year of his contract.
Currently on loan in West London from Los Blancos, Kovacic doesn’t want to return to the Bernabéu when his temporary Chelsea deal ends in the summer, and the six-time English champions would like the Croatian midfielder to stay on.
