Real Madrid have first option on Hazard

Real Madrid have first option on Hazard

According to the Italian press, Eden Hazard has already signed a pre-contract agreement with Real Madrid who now have first option on the Belgium international.

Despite the interest of some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Arsenal, it seems Real Madrid will end up the winners of the race for Hazard's signature anyway.

Real Madrid chief Zinedine Zidane is a huge fan of Hazard, whilst Jose Mourinho also has been watching the progression of the Lille midfielder himself in the last two months.

It appears that Real have already swooped for Hazard as part of a 40m EUR first option agreement.
