On Monday Sergio Ramos has added yet more substance to transfer speculation linking Eden Hazard with a move to Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid captain has finally given the Belgian forward a follow on Instagram.
Of course, this kind of ‘signs’ should be taken with a grain of salt but nevertheless seems significant in the light of transfer details which have emerged in the recent weeks.
For instance, last Thursday the Sun have leaked the alleged details of Hazard’s Real Madrid contract. The Belgian’s deal at the Bernabeu is worth £400,000 a week after tax. This will add up to a total of £20m that the Belgian will pocket each year for the duration of his six-year contract, and that is not including the bonuses.
According to the media, the winger could further earn £15m in bonuses if he helps Real to domestic and European trophies in his first season. Los Blancos also allegedly intend to insert a £250m buyout clause into the deal.
It is also claimed that Chelsea have already told Hazard’s representatives that they will not stand in the way of his move as long as Real Madrid will meet the asking price of £100m.
