Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has already secured the deals for Eden Hazard and David De Gea, according to a sensational report from Spain.
Real Madrid are gearing up to break the bank this summer after a few quiet transfer windows. The La Liga champions have long been linked with both Hazard and De Gea. And, according to a report from Don Balon, Perez has already managed to complete the deals for the Premier League duo.
Real are right now at the top of La Liga, three points ahead of Barcelona with a game in hand. The news outlet claim these two new signings will allow Zinedine Zidane’s team to maintain that advantage over their arch rivals for years to come.
Hazard still has over 3 years left to run on his current Chelsea contract but Real Madrid are rumoured to be quite confident they will snap up the in-form Blues star this summer if they include Alvaro Morata in a swap deal worth a combined £120 million.
The Belgian attacker has enjoyed an exceptional return to form under Antonio Conte compared to last season, scoring 14 goals and assisting six for the Premier League leaders this term.
Meanwhile, De Gea’s current contract with Manchester United runs until the summer of 2019 and Jose Mourinho doesn’t believe David De Gea has been distracted by renewed talk of a switch to Real Madrid, with the Red Devils boss saying it would be irresponsible to be affected by transfer speculation.
De Gea has been crowned United’s Player of the Year for the last three seasons but was on the brink of joining Real Madrid in 2015 before the transfer collapsed acrimoniously on deadline day.
