Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has agreed to pen a new deal with the London Club but on the condition that a release clause that would let him join Real Madrid be inserted in the new contract, this is according to reports.
Hazard has remained top on the transfer wishlist of Los Blancos and they are poised to snap him up before the World Cup. Although the future of Zinedine Zidane as the manager of the Santiago Bernabeu outfit remains bleak, the French tactician has viewed Hazard as one to take Madrid to another level.
Meanwhile, Chelsea slipped out of the top four of the Premier League and their season has only gone from bad to worse. The League Champions have reportedly offered a new contract to Hazard but the Belgian is yet to commit his future to the Club following the recent decadence.
Chelsea are willing to make Hazard their most paid player, with a £300,000-a-week deal already on the table for him. However, Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo are in the claim that the 27-year-old attacker will agree to sign the deal if a release clause is inserted. The said clause will allow Hazard join Madrid for a pre-established price, as further claimed by the report.
Since joining the Blues from Lille, Hazard has won two Premier League trophies among others and the new deal is signed, he will be in control of his future, as he will leave whenever he pleases.
Hazard is valued at £90.00m according to transfermarkt.
