Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard is said to have agreed on personal terms with Spanish football giants and Champions League holders, Real Madrid ahead of a transfer deal that will see the Belgian player switch sides from English side Chelsea to Real Madrid.
Eden Hazard’s contract at Chelsea will expire in 2010 and if the Stamford Bridge outfit is unable to tie Eden Hazard down to a new deal before his contract expires, Chelsea would be forced to cash in on their star player. English side Chelsea is reported to be demanding a huge sum in the region of €170 million from any club that wants to buy their star player in the event that they are willing to sell.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, is unwilling to pay such huge amount for Eden Hazard, so the Spanish football giants have prepared a ‘player plus cash’ deal that could potentially see midfielder Mateo Kovacic swapped and move to the opposite side, Chelsea on a permanent basis.
Eden Hazard has been in talks with Chelsea for several months over a deal to renew his contract but nothing concrete has come out of their negotiations. The 27years old Belgian player did not score for his Chelsea side as they were defeated yesterday by Wolves in a fierce premier league encounter that saw Mauricio Sarri’s men lose a premier league game for the second time this season after being in front from an early goal by Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the 18th minute.
No doubt, Eden Hazard has the ambition to play at Real Madrid and could be weighing up his chances as his current contract at Chelsea will expire in about two years from now in 2020. Eden Hazard is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world right now and for players in that sort of category, their asking price is usually in the range of around €170 million or even more. A typical example is Philippe Coutinho’s transfer fee to Barcelona, Kylian Mbappe’s transfer fee to Paris St. Germaine (PSG), Ousmane Dembele’s transfer fee to Barcelona, Paul Pogba transfer fee to Manchester United and so on. It is usually not a question of whether the players worth the huge sum of money being shelled out for their signing or whether the huge transfer fees are being used for the most justifiable or judicious transfer move. Anyways, La Liga giants Real Madrid is known to be a big spender when it comes to transfers and they never appear to be interested in saving money by looking to sign young and inexperienced players.
Eden Hazard will be hoping that his blistering performance and/or goal(s) will lead his Chelsea side to an important win against League leaders Manchester City when the two sides meet in a crunch Premier League game at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
