Real agree Hazard deal

Chelsea are reported to have agreed a deal in principle for the sale of midfielder Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

The Belgian international netted 19 goals for the Blues last term as they went on to lift the Premier League title after a five-year wait.

However, he has struggled to keep up his form this season, and this has led to claims that he may seek pastures new in the summer.

According to Spanish source AS, the 25-year-old is in no frame to play for the Blues after Los Blancos reached an agreement to secure his services at the end of the season.

Hazard has been the subject of recent criticism from the club's faithful after he swapped shirts with Angel di Maria midway through the second leg of the Blues' 4-2 aggregate defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League round of 16.
