Chelsea and Madrid close in on Hazard deal

Transfer: Chelsea and Real Madrid agree date to seal Hazard deal

May 2, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Details of the deal between the Belgian footballer and Los Blancos will be released in the next few weeks.

Real Madrid and Chelsea are almost ready to announce the deal between them for Eden Hazard to join Los Blancos, but there is still one major hurdle to overcome.

According to sources consulted by Spanish newspaper Marca, both the player and Real Madrid are willing to announce the deal, but Chelsea wants to delay the announcement for one particular reason: their quest to end among the top four in the English Premier League is not over.

The Blues are still entangled in a battle to secure the last available spot to play in the UEFA Champions League next season. Sarri's men are two points behind Tottenham and two points above Arsenal in the race to secure one of those two spots, and to announce Hazard's transfer before the end of the season would surely be criticized by fans and experts.

Hence, Chelsea's hierarchy has asked Real Madrid to keep the deal under wraps until the end of the EPL season takes place.

Real Madrid, currently third in La Liga and in no danger of losing that spot to Getafe, has allegedly agreed to Chelsea's conditions, which some believe that could facilitate any pending details in the negotiation.
