Eden Hazard will sign for Real Madrid next summer, according to French journalist Frederic Hermel. The Belgian attacker has a 'done deal' with Los Blancos, per that same report, and will be able to move to the Spanish capital once Real Madrid and Chelsea agree on a fee.

Hermel is very close to Zinedine Zidane, who has always been on record saying that Hazard is one of the greatest talents in football. The Chelsea player has not been performing up to expectations lately and that could ultimately make things easier for Real Madrid.

Although Real Madrid is not allowed to talk to Hazard before reaching an agreement with Chelsea, Frederic Hermel is probably right when he says that Hazard will join Real Madrid next summer. Chelsea would reportedly be willing to sell the player and Zidane is a big fan of his game, so Pérez will most likely make Hazard his galáctico this year.

Likelihood of the move 5/10
