Eden Hazard speaks out over reports that he has agreed to join Real Madrid from Chelsea


Eden Hazard has rejected claims he has already agreed to join Real Madrid from Chelsea in the summer by saying ‘there’s nothing in the reports’.

It was reported in the Spanish press on Friday that Hazard had agreed in principle a five-year deal to join Real in the summer in a move that would make him their highest-paid player.

Speculation over Hazard’s future at Stamford Bridge has rumbled on for months, however, the return of Zinedine Zidane as Real’s manager is said to have convinced him to leave Chelsea.

However, Hazard who is currently on international duty with Belgium refused to be drawn over the reports that he will move to the Bernabeu ahead of his country’s game against Cyprus in which he is expected to win his 100th cap.
