Hazard keen on Real Madrid move

Eden Hazard has reportedly indicated his desire to join Real Madrid within a week of Chelsea's Europa League final against Arsenal.

The Belgian has just 13 months remaining on his current deal with the Blues and his reluctance to pen an extension has increased his prospects of leaving the club.

According to The Mirror, the 28-year-old is keen on securing a move to Los Blancos this summer and he has set a deadline until June 4 in order to sort out his future.

Chelsea are said to have turned down a bid in the region of £86m for the playmaker and reports indicate that they want at least £112m to part ways with the Belgian.

Hazard has bagged 19 goals and 16 assists for the Blues during the ongoing campaign and that remains his best-ever return in the club's shirt in a single season. 

He is expected to start in the forthcoming Europa League final against Arsenal where the Blues have the opportunity to secure their first European silverware since 2013.
