Speculation of Hazard's future at Chelsea has been at a record high ahead of the new campaign, with the Belgium global most recently being linked with a move to Real Madrid following the announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Italian giants Juventus.

Real are said to be targeting Hazard following their sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

Real Madrid have been linked with Hazard but, according to Transfermarketweb, the Belgium global has reportedly agreed to sign for the Catalan giants and will move in a £80m deal. Conte is the manager but probably won't be for too much longer.

The Catalan giants are reportedly looking to bring in a number of reinforcements ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, with a view to giving Ernesto Valverde a more complete squad than he had last season, perhaps to give them a better chance of winning the UEFA Champions League.

Hazard has been linked with a move to Madrid since the end of last season and the report also claims that Tottenham striker Harry Kane is wanted by the Galacticos.

Real Madrid will undeniably need a marquee signing this summer to make up for Ronaldo's absence.

It means the Belgian won't be playing Champions League football next term unless he gets a move elsewhere.

Having missed out on Antoine Griezmann, however, Barcelona are said to have identified Hazard as their primary transfer target and are also preparing a second bid for his Chelsea teammate Willian, who is also of interest to Manchester United. It's only a question of time before Madrid sign Ronaldo's replacement.
