Real Madrid have agreed to a five-year pre-contract agreement with Eden Hazard, according to Talksport, with the playmaker making the move to La Liga next summer.

Hazard has been a star for Lille over the last season and this one, and as a result multiple clubs around Europe have been chasing down his signature.


And while Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool had all been keeping tabs on the Belgium international, Real Madrid have reportedly won the race to sign Hazard, with an agreement stating he will make the move next July after Ligue 1 finishes.

Arsenal in particular were said to be interested in Hazard, though Arsene Wenger had been stalling on signing the youngster, hoping to get a cut-price deal.

But in doing so, Liverpool and Chelsea were able to get involved in a transfer tussle, and after Real Madrid became interested, Lille were able to demand big money for Hazard’s signature.

Real Madrid agreeing to the deal with the star will come as a blow to Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, as well as Inter Milan, who were also said to be interested.
