Real Madrid decides when Eden Hazard will be unveiled after £106m 'agreement'

Real Madrid have reportedly reached an agreement with Chelsea over the signing of Eden Hazard after £106m agreement.

Eden Hazard joins Real Madrid
Real endured a disastrous campaign that saw them finish third in La Liga and struggle in the Champions League.

Earlier today, they secured the £52m signing of striker Luka Jovic from German club Frankfurt which reached the semi-final of the Europa Leaague this season.

And now finally, confirming the arrival of Hazard is their next priority.

According to Belgian outlet HLN, Real and Chelsea have agreed on a deal worth €120m (£106m).

The Blues had previously rejected two offers from the Spanish giants but they’ve settled on a figure following negotiations between Chelsea chief Marina Granovskaia and Real CEO Jose Angel Sanchez in London.

HLN report that Real are happy to wait until after Belgium’s Euro 2020 qualifiers to officially sign contracts and unveil Hazard.

Belgium face Kazakhstan on Saturday before hosting Scotland next Tuesday.

Real had initially been only willing to pay €100m (£88m) to sign Hazard because his contract at Stamford Bridge was due to expire next summer.

But club chiefs decided to up their budget after Zidane made it clear he wanted to build his squad around the 28-year-old.

Hazard played his last game for Chelsea in last week’s Europa League final which saw him bagging two goals, and an assist.

After the game, the Chelsea winger made it clear he’d be leaving the club.
"We will decide in a few days and the only target in my mind was to win this final," he told BT Sport.

"I have made my decision already and now I'm waiting on both clubs. I think it is a goodbye, but in football you never know.

"My dream was to play in the Premier League and I have done that for one of the biggest clubs so maybe now it is the time for a new challenge."
