Chelsea will sell Eden Hazard to Real Madrid this summer, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The Blues are likely to allow their attacking talisman to join the Spanish superstars – provided Madrid meet their asking price of at least £87 million.

Despite a looming transfer ban, Chelsea are keen to balance the books after a string of expensive signings, including the world-record £74m fee they paid for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Letting Hazard leave on a free transfer next season would have dire consequences for their Financial Fair Play figures.

Hazard has been absolutely sensational this season for the Blues, scoring 19 goals and creating 16 assists in all competitions, having a direct hand in more goals than any other Premier League player this year.

The Chelsea playmaker is one of the most talented dribblers in the game, terrorising defenders with his electric pace and cheeky skills.

Hazard has netted 85 goals in 245 games in the Premier League, as well as providing 54 assists.

The Belgian has won two Premier League trophies during his time at Stamford Bridge, as well as the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup.

Hazard is eager to win one more trophy with the Blues when Chelsea face rivals Arsenal in next week’s Europa League final.

Chelsea had hoped to convince Hazard to sign a contract extension, but after a prolific career at the Blues, the club are eager to respect his wishes and cash in on a lucrative deal with Los Blancos.
