The highly anticipated transfer of Eden Hazard from Chelsea to Real Madrid appears to have hit a snag according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet AS reports that both clubs are yet to agree on a fee for the player with negotiations currently in a deadlock.
Chelsea are standing on their valuation of the player which is believed to be in the region of £106 million but Madrid are unwilling to pay more than £88 million.
Hazard has a year left on his existing contract and has expressed his desires to leave the Chelsea this season.
Despite his wishes, Chelsea are under no pressure to sell the player this season. Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is reportedly scheduled to meet her Madrid counterpart Jose Angel Sanchez in London this week to finalise talks.
Hazard has been an excellent player for the Blues since his move from French side Lille in 2012.
His creative ability, as well as his instincts in front of goal, has been crucial for the club in the past few seasons. This was evident this season as he led the club in goals, assists, dribbles and shots on goal.
The 28-year-old scored 21 goals in all competitions as the club won the Europa League and finished in the top 4 places.
