Chelsea new home kit 2019/20 season Blues unveil new home kit for the next season

Real Madrid are reportedly confident of snapping up his luxurious services in the summer.

Chelsea will debut the new strip for the first time on May 5 during the club's final league home game of the season against Watford.

It's for this reason that a matter that is virtually settled, the transfer of Hazard to Los Blancos, hasn't yet been made official.

The outlet believes that Los Blancos have now accepted that they will need to break their own transfer record (£86 million for Gareth Bale in 2013) to sign the Belgium worldwide.

Hazard's current contract at Chelsea FC is set to expire at the end of next season, and the Blues may choose to sell him this summer rather than risk losing him for free next year.

Talks are understood to have taken place in private and the deal could be announced as soon as May 12 if Chelsea fail to reach the Europa League final. The Spanish club know that Pogba would like to join them having becoming dissatisfied at Old Trafford by United's season but are aware that the club won't consider selling their star asset for less than £150million - a price Madrid aren't prepared to pay.

"I tell you what though, if Eden Hazard is going to be wearing it next season, I will get used to it a whole lot quicker", author Mark Worrall said.

Some reports claim Real Madrid are willing to pay £90 million for Hazard.

Chelsea supporters are suddenly optimistic that Eden Hazard will continue to ply his trade in England after modelling next season's home strip.
