Real Madrid reach agreement for Chelsea playmaker?
Real Madrid are understood to have sealed the signing of Eden Hazard from Chelsea, though an announcement is likely to be delayed until the end of the campaign.
The Belgium international has been heavily tipped to join the outgoing European champions in the summer and it appears that the move is close to completion.
According to Marca, Los Blancos have already acquired the services of Hazard from the west London side but a decision has yet to be made regarding the official announcement over the transfer.
The Blues are currently still competing in both the Premier League and Europa League for different objectives and reports indicate that the announcement could be delayed until the end of the month.
However, should the Blues fail to make the Europa League final, it is suggested that Los Blancos may be able to announce the recruitment of Hazard by the end of next week.
Hazard was only a second half substitute during the recent Europa League clash against Eintracht Frankfurt but he is expected to start against Watford this weekend.
