Chelsea have agreed to sell star man Eden Hazard to Real Madrid for a club-record sale of £115million, according to reports.

The 28-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Los Blancos for a number of years and there has been intense speculation that the Belgium international will make the switch this summer.

Now The Sun report that the Spanish giants have finally struck a deal with the West London club after talks between the two.

Hazard has won two Premier League titles with Chelsea.

It’s claimed owner Roman Abramovich has sanctioned the transfer as he would rather sell than risk losing the playmaker for nothing when his deal expires in June 2020.

The ex-Lille ace, who has registered 19 goals and 16 assists this term, is expected to pen a four-year del worth £400,000 per week following Chelsea’s Europa League final against Arsenal on Wednesday.

Madrid are looking to reinvent their squad this summer after a disappointing campaign which saw them go through three different managers.

Zinedine Zidane returned to the Bernabeu for his second spell in charge in March and will be aiming to compete for trophies next term after winning three consecutive Champions League titles in his first three seasons in charge.
