Sources: Real Madrid's £88.5m bid for Eden Hazard accepted

Eden Hazard must sign for Real Madrid after Chelsea has accepted an offer of £88.5 million, plus significant additions that could push the deal to £ 130 million,
 sources told ESPN FC.

While the initial Hazard rate is significantly below Chelsea's initial £130 million price, it is understood that when realistic bonuses and additional payments are
 calculated, the value of the Madrid offer will reach that amount.

Madrid's chief executive Jose Angel Sanchez traveled to London earlier this week in hopes of securing a deal for Hazard, and both clubs reached an agreement on
Thursday morning.

Barcelona coach Zinedine Zidane signed Hazard on a priority when he renewed his team after a disappointing season as Chelsea resigned to sell their star before
entering the final year of contract.

Hazard will leave Chelsea after 110 goals and 81 assists in 352 appearances in all competitions, with two Premier League titles among the six major trophies won
 in their seven seasons at Stamford Bridge.

He inspired Chelsea to beat Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final in their farewell, scoring twice and scoring a goal for Pedro.

Sources told ESPN that Hazard was in regular contact with Zidane for several months, with him and his family investigating housing and school options in Madrid.

The Madrid team has been interested in the Belgian international for many years and asked to hire him last summer, only for Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia
to make it clear that he was not for sale.

Hazard's move to Madrid sees him meeting with former Chelsea team-mate Thibaut Courtois, who left the Stamford Bridge on a £35m contract last summer.
