Eden Hazard closer to Real Madrid move after ‘decision’ taken on future

Hazard I have made a decision over my future

The Belgium global was strongly linked with a transfer away from Stamford Bridge after last summer's World Cup and has said that a move to the Spanish capital would be a "dream".

It is, however, believed in Spain that Real have now given Hazard the assurances he wanted that they will make a bid to Chelsea to sign him.

The brilliant Belgium has less than 18 months on his contract with no indication of signing an extension, stating recently that he "knows what he's going to do" with rumours of a move to Madrid brewing for several years now.

Do you think Real Madrid should choose Eden Hazard or Neymar? "If he wants to go, he has to go", Sarri said last week.

Manchester United and Manchester City are both linked with Fiorentina forward Federico Chiesa, who has also attracted interest from Inter, Juventus, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Losing an asset as valuable as Hazard - deemed one of the best attacking stars in the world - would not be countenanced at Stamford Bridge. They could barter Chelsea down to 100m euros.

Unsurprisingly, Hazard is the most prolific player at Chelsea this season, with a record of 15 goals and 10 assists in 31 appearances leaving him set for his most productive campaign at the club.

Like Hazard, Willian's contract expires in the summer of 2020 and could feasibly leave for free if he is not handed a new contract by then.

The Independent explains that Real were not in a position to pay the £250m pounds that Chelsea were seeking for Hazard past year.
