Eden Hazard laughed off the suggestion he has agreed to join Real Madrid

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard has denied reports that he has agreed a lucrative five-year deal with Real Madrid.

Hazard’s Chelsea deal comes to an end after next season and reports emerged this week stating that he had agreed to join Real – after speaking directly to their head coach Zinedine Zidane.

Hazard is currently on international duty with Belgium and, when asked about the Real link on Saturday, he smiled and said: “There’s nothing in the reports.I’m only focused on tomorrow’s game against Cyprus.”That’s all I’m thinking about.”

Chelsea rejected a bid of around £60m for Hazard earlier this month.

The Belgian has turned down offers of a new deal at Chelsea so far – but with the spectre of a transfer ban hanging over the London club, they may be reluctant to sell their prize asset.

If they are unable to sign Hazard, Real are planning a move for West Ham’s Felipe Anderson.
