Chelsea's star player, Eden Hazard, is on the verge of signing for Real Madrid. According to sources close to the situation, Real Madrid have stepped up talks in recent days as they look to secure their first 'Galactico' signing of the summer. Zinedine Zidane is a huge admirer of the Belgian winger and believes Hazard is essential to the project he's building at Madrid.
The Spanish club are desperate to reach an agreement with Chelsea, who are well aware that Hazard wants to leave this summer and play for Real Madrid. Talks could even continue next week as both sides look to find a positive solution.
After Zidane's words on the matter, the transfer has been placed in the hands of Madrid's negotiators. Chelsea are open to letting him leave but want a huge figure for a player who is about to enter the last 12 months of his current deal. Hazard's desire to go should tip the balance in Madrid's favour.
