Chelsea will not stand in Belgian forward Eden Hazard’s way and are ready to let him to make a move to Real Madrid even if they are handed two-window transfer ban this summer.
The 28-year-old midfielder only has one year left on his current deal with Chelsea and has been heavily rumoured with a move to the Los Blancos, with Zinedine Zidane having made him the team top transfer target.
However, there had been suggestions that the West London club would hang on to Belgian superstar for one more year if their appeal for transfer ban was rejected, even if it meant losing their superstar for free.
However, now the Daily Mail claimed that the Blues will permit the Belgian forward to join Real Madrid regardless as not getting a transfer fee for the 28-year-old attacker would have big repercussions for their Financial Fair Play figures.
Chelsea want at least £87million for the 28-year-old forward despite only playing 12 months left on his current contract, and will look to reinvest those funds in rebuilding their team for the next season.
According to the report from Britain, Belgian forward will go to Spain ‘with the blessing of everyone at the West London club’ having been a loyal servant to the Blues during his seven years at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues had hoped to convince former Lile forward to put pen on a paper to a contract extension, however, when he made it clear he would not commit to the club felt they had to cash in, partly out of respect for his service and ready to allow him to leave the club.
