Chelsea ready to sell Hazard to Real Madrid due to FFP

Chelsea are prepared to sell Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.

The Daily Mail says allowing him to leave for free next year would have repercussions for their Financial Fair Play figures.

Hazard has made it clear he wants to end his seven-year stay at Stamford Bridge after next week's Europa League final against Arsenal and join Real.

Chelsea are holding out for £87million for the 28-year-old forward, who cost £32m from Lille and has one year left on his contract.

Hazard will go to Spain with the blessing of everyone at the club if Real meet the asking price because he has been such a popular figure.

To allow such a valuable asset to walk out on a free next year would hit accounts which are carefully managed to keep within UEFA's FFP regulations.
