Deal Close: Chelsea Talisman Confirms Real Madrid Decision
Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has all but confirmed his decision to leave the club for Spanish giants Real Madrid when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
The Belgian international confirmed that he has told Chelsea about his imminent exit in a chat with reporters shortly after he came on as a second half substitute during the final game of the season.
Hazard replaced Brazilian international Willian in the 69th minute as Chelsea played out a goalless draw with hosts Leicester City in the final league game of the season.
The Chelsea fans sang the name of Hazard in the away section during the Leicester City game as they are desperate for him to stay at the club.
He has a year left on his Chelsea contract ahead of a proposed transfer to Spanish giants Real Madrid and the player is expected to play his last game for the club in the Europa League final later this month.
Chelsea have the opportunity to end the season with a trophy when they face London rivals Arsenal in the final billed for Baku, Azerbaijan on May 29.
Real Madrid have already indicated their interest in signing Eden Hazard but Chelsea are said to be holding out for around £112m according to popular media outlet Goal despite the fact that he has just 12 months left on his contract at Stamford Bridge.
