The Belgian international is closing in on a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer.
Chelsea are almost certain to sell him this summer as their star player has one year left on his current contract with the Blues.
Eden Hazard is the top transfer target for Real Madrid this summer and Cengiz Under could be his replacement at Chelsea especially if the two-window transfer ban on the Blues by FIFA is lifted upon their appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
Cengiz Under scored three goals and provided seven assists in 26 games for AS Roma during the just concluded Italian Serie A season.
