Chelsea tell Real Madrid Hazard will cost £130 million

Chelsea have told Real Madrid it will cost £130m to sign Eden Hazard this summer.

Hazard revealed earlier this month that he had made a decision on his future, the 28-year-old believed to have informed Chelsea of his desire to move to Spain.

Negotiations between the clubs have stalled with Real so far unwilling to match Chelsea’s price tag for a player who is entering the final 12 months of his contract.

Despite the possibility of losing Hazard for nothing next summer, according to Sky Sports the club are under no pressure to sell and will demand a fee of £130m for the winger.

Due to the length of his contract, Real are believed to value Hazard at no more than £88m, some way short of Chelsea’s valuation.

Talks are expected to progress following the Europa League final next week, where Chelsea will face Arsenal in Baku on May 29 in what could be Hazard’s final appearance in a blue shirt.
