Real Madrid have agreed a blockbuster deal to sign Chelsea winger Eden Hazard for a fee of up to £ 130 million ( $ 165 million ) , according to British media reports on Thursday .
Hazard is Real’ s top transfer target as the Spanish club rebuild after a dismal season and the Belgium star appears set to complete his move to the Bernabeu in the next few days .
A Daily Telegraph report said Real and Chelsea came to an agreement over the terms of the deal on Thursday after several days of negotiations .
Real had originally offered around £ 88 million , but it is claimed the final fee could rise as high as £ 130 million when all the bonus payments are included .
The basic fee for Hazard is expected to reach £ 100 million , the sum for which Chelsea had been holding out despite the 28 – year – old entering the final year of his Stamford Bridge contract .
Hazard is on the verge of leaving Chelsea after seven years , having won two Premier League titles , two Europa League crowns, one FA Cup and one League Cup.
He scored twice in Chelsea ’ s 4 – 1 Europa League final win over Arsenal in Baku last month , then immediately admitted he expected his time at Stamford Bridge to come to an end .
Hazard has been hoping for a move to Real for over a year , with Chelsea blocking his attempt to leave last year before the Blues finally accepted his wish in the closing weeks of the season .
Speaking after the Europa League final, Hazard had said : “ I think it ’ s a goodbye . My dream was to play in the Premier League, I did it for seven years . Maybe it ’ s time for a new challenge . ”
Hazard joined Chelsea from Lille in 2012 , and in his final campaign at Stamford Bridge , he became just the fourth man in Premier League history to score 15 goals and make 15 assists in a season .
Chelsea have been resigned to losing Hazard since he rejected all offers of a contract extension and has been the subject of flattering comments from Real manager Zinedine Zidane in recent months.
