Transfer: Real Madrid get caution over Hazard

Former Real Madrid president, Ramon Calderon has told the club not to expect Chelsea to lower their valuation of Eden Hazard.

The 28 years old has only a year left in his contract at Stamford Bridge and is value at £130m by the club.

Zinedine Zidane is confident of signing the Belgian forward for no more than £88m.

However after his brace in Wednesday’s 4-1 Europa League win over Arsenal the player admitted that it felt like “goodbye” to Chelsea.

Calderon, who has good with negotiating with Chelsea, noted the club needs to up their offer if they want to sign the player from Chelsea.

Calderon told Sky Sports: it looks closer Eden is going to Real Madrid and is a good news for them

It is not fair to keep a player who has been there for seven years and who has one year left on his contract

Chelsea are not that easy in terms of negotiation. I remember quite well because in 2007 i had a long talk with Roman Abramovich and Peter Kenyon at that time about Arjen Robben.

He was not playing but despite that they kept their price for the player at £35m.

At that time it was a huge amount of money. i tried all my best to reduce the price until the last minute but finally we paid it.”
