Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has reportedly agreed a move to Real Madrid, with a salary negotiated for £14 million pounds a year.

The agreement comes after the arrival of Zinedine Zidane, who replaced Santiago Solari after an underwhelming season in the Champions League and La Liga.

The only remaining obstacle is for Real and Chelsea to come to an agreement over the fee.

Spanish outlet Sport claims that Hazard has already come to terms on a long-term deal with Los Blancos worth a reported £14m per year.

However, Madrid must still reach an agreement with Chelsea, who are even more reluctant to lose their star player having been handed a two-window transfer ban by FIFA.

The Blues could be tempted into cashing in on Hazard with his contract expiring in 2020, though, and he is understood to have given Madrid the green light to begin talks over a summer move.

Hazard fuelled speculation over a possible Stamford Bridge exit by speaking of his admiration for Zinedine Zidane earlier this week, and the Madrid boss has reportedly already been in contact with the forward.

Zidane is hopeful that the 28-year-old can spearhead the Madrid attack in a similar way to that of Cristiano Ronaldo, who left the club last summer.

Hazard has scored 105 goals in 339 appearances since joining Chelsea in 2012.
