Reports broke out last week in Spain that Chelsea star Eden Hazard has agreed a five-year deal with Real Madrid worth £270k-a-week.

Spanish media outlet OK Diario claimed the 28-year-old winger has agreed a five-year deal after speaking directly with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane.

Hazard has now denied reports that he has agreed a lucrative five-year deal with Real Madrid.

Hazard is currently on international duty with Belgium and, when asked about the report claiming he has agreed a five-year deal with Real Madrid, he smiled and said: “There’s nothing in the reports.

“I’m only focused on (Sunday)’s game against Cyprus.

“That’s all I’m thinking about.”

Hazard has just over one year left on his Chelsea contract and Zidane has made the Belgium captain a primary target ahead of the summer.

It is believed Real Madrid submitted a bid of about £60million for Hazard earlier this month and the Blues rejected the bid. Chelsea will only sell the Belgian for at least £100million if the club decides to let him leave.

Hazard has stalled on signing a new Chelsea contract so far and with Chelsea unable to sign a replacement for the Belgian, the Blues may be reluctant to sell the Belgium captain.

According to reports, Real Madrid will make a move for West Ham’s Felipe Anderson or Lyon skipper Nebil Fekir if they are unable to sign Hazard this summer.
