Eden Hazard set to complete his Real Madrid move in a deal worth up to £130million after Chelsea finally agreed with Spanish club on his transfer deal.
After weeks of being reluctant to pay more than £88m for the Belgian, the Blancos has finally come to terms on a deal that is set to earn Chelsea as much as £130m when all the bonuses are met.
It is understood the bonuses are easily achievable and the Blues are extremely confident they will receive the full £130m for the forward, who only had one year left on his contract.
The Laliga club will claim to have negotiated Chelsea down, arguing the initial fee is around £88m, but the full value of the deal is much higher and will be viewed as another big win for director Marina Granovskaia inside Stamford Bridge.
Granovskaia stuck to her price, despite Hazard publicly stating he wanted to leave after last week’s Europa League final victory over Arsenal and Real’s attempts to play hardball.
Hazard is on international duty with Belgium, but the agreement of personal terms between the forward and Real are viewed as a formality.
This shows Chelsea will earn around £100m profit on Hazard, who they signed for £32m from Lille in 2012.
In his seven seasons at the club, he scored 110 goals and won two Premier League titles, two Europa Leagues, the FA Cup and the League Cup.
