Real Madrid ready £200m move for Chelsea's Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois

Premier League side Chelsea have placed a KSh 26.6 billion world record price tag on Eden Hazard as reports continue to link him with a move to La Liga side Real Madrid.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard has reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Real Madrid to join Los Blancos this summer.

Real president Florentino Perez has wanted a top-class stopper to replace Keylor Navas for some time, and is happy said to be have landed the Belgian's signature after the club's failed attempt to sign David de Gea from Manchester United in 2015.

Hazard has repeatedly hinted that he would be open to joining Madrid at some stage of his career, and Matteo Pedrosi of Calciomercato claims that he has now agreed personal terms with the European champions.

As pointed out by Bleacher Report's James Dudko, although Chelsea may not feel compelled to sell their ace goalkeeper, they simply may have no choice as Courtois is out of contract next summer, subsequently giving the Londoners little to no leverage in fee negotiations with Madrid.
