Real Madrid are close to completing a deal to sign Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard after months of secret talks, report talkSPORT.
Hazard had a season to forget last time around, but has returned to form this campaign and few would argue that he is the Premier League’s best, and most entertaining, player.
His electric form has played a huge part in Chelsea’s ascent to the summit of English football, and the Blues don’t look as though they’re going to be knocked off their perch anytime soon.
The Belgian’s stunning performances under Antonio Conte’s stewardship appeared to have captured the attention of one of Chelsea’s fellow European heavyweights.
talkSPORT cite reports in Spain in claiming that Real Madrid have been in secret talks with Chelsea for months over the possibility of securing Hazard’s services at the season’s end. It is reported that the clubs are close to putting pen to paper on a ‘mega-money’ deal.
