The Belgium international has been a long-term target for Madrid and the Spanish giants are finally on the verge of landing the 28-year-old.
Madrid had struggled to agree a fee with Chelsea, who were holding out for well in excess of £100m for Hazard.
Zinedine Zidane’s side refused to pay so much money for a player that has entered the final 12 months of his current deal.
Hazard has already agreed personal terms on a lucrative long-term deal with Madrid and agreeing a fee was the only obstacle left in the way.
