Eden Hazard sets June 4 deadline for Real Madrid transfer as Chelsea set £130m asking price

EDEN HAZARD has set a June 4 deadline on his Real Madrid transfer, according to reports.

But Los Blancos are thought to still be a fell short of Chelsea's £130million valuation with their offer for the Belgian winger.

It is no secret that Hazard, 28, is desperate to move to the Bernabeu this summer.

Meanwhile Real boss Zinedine Zidane has made signing the Blues star his top priority this summer.

And according to the Mirror, Hazard wants the transfer resolved within a week of the Europa League final.

The Europa League final takes place this Wednesday night in Baku and he will then join up with his international team-mates for Belgium's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Scotland.

So ideally, Hazard wants to have his future sorted before the summer.

But it is also understood Real Madrid need to significantly increase their bid.

The Bernabeu side are currently offering £86m to sign Hazard, who has just one year left on his current contract.

Some reckon Chelsea are happy to accept £112m for their star man – but the Telegraph reckon they are determined to hold out for £130m.

Asked this week whether the Arsenal clash would be his final game for the Blues, the former Lille man remained tight-lipped.

Hazard told RMC: "I do not think that at all.

"I’m only thinking about winning this match and then what will happen after that will happen.

"I have an important week to prepare, with a trophy to play for."
