According to Sky Sports News, Real Madrid have agreed a deal in principle for Hazard worth £88m plus significant add-ons that would be finalized in the coming days.

Daily Mirror's chief football writer John Cross believes Hazard's departure to Spain will have a wide effect on the Premier League.

He told the Nations League Supplement podcast: "One thing we forget about Eden Hazard, because we know it has been coming for so long, is that it detracts from the devastating blow that it will be, not just for Chelsea, but for the Premier League.

"I think it is the biggest single loss of a player since Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United for Real Madrid - I think he is that talented.

"Hazard is the single best player in the Premier League. He's so influential for Chelsea. When he gets the ball in even the most mundane games, he can light up the whole occasion and he looks like he glides across the pitch. He's a wonderful, wonderful player and it will be a massive blow for Chelsea.

"It will bring the club down and it will have a deflating, destabilizing effect in many ways. Clearly, Hazard has had his sights set on Real Madrid and it is a devastating blow for the Premier League and for the next two or three years, we'll miss him."
