Real Madrid have agreed a deal in principle for Chelsea forward Eden Hazard worth £88m plus significant add-ons.
It is understood Chelsea were demanding a fee in the region of £130m.
Hazard, who has one year left on his Chelsea contract, said it was his wish to leave Stamford Bridge after scoring twice to beat Arsenal 4-1 in the the Europa League final.
“I think it is goodbye, but in football you never know,” the 28-year-old said after the final whistle in Baku.
Chelsea might not be able to sign a replacement due to a two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA after an investigation into the club’s signing of foreign U18 players.
Zinedine Zidane is looking to rebuild his Real squad after a dismal season which saw them eliminated from the Champions League at the last-16 stage and finish third in La Liga – a record 19 points behind Barcelona, who knocked them out in the semi-final of the Copa del Rey.
They have already signed centre-back Eder Militao from Porto as well as striker Luka Jovic from Frankfurt.
