Hazard to cost £98.5m for Real Madrid

Chelsea have reportedly set an asking price of around £98.5m for Eden Hazard and they are unlikely to accept less than that figure for the Belgian's sale in the summer.

The Belgian has spent almost seven seasons at the Bridge but his future remains a talking point with his existing deal due to expire at the end of next season.

According to Belgian outlet HLN, the Blues have taken a strong stance on the situation of their attacker and they are unlikely to accept bids less than £98.5m during the summer transfer window.

Hazard has so far shown no interest in renewing his contract with the west London giants and it remains to be seen whether the Blues will stick with the valuation, should no offers come by.

Real Madrid are currently the favourites to sign the former Lille graduate but they are hoping to take advantage of the player's contract situation and settle for a reduced sum in the region of £65m.
