Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard described new signing Gonzalo Higuain as "unbelievable" in the box after the Argentina global scored twice in Saturday's 5-0 thrashing of the Premier League's bottom side Huddersfield Town.
Hazard has enjoyed a hugely-successful period at Stamford Bridge since joining the club in 2012, but the Belgium playmaker has frequently been linked with a move to Madrid.
Hazard has previously admitted that playing for Los Blancos is a boyhood dream of his, while at other times he has suggested that he may decide to stay at Stamford Bridge.
"I think they will have the ball".
Following Hazard's most recent quotes, which suggested that he has already made a decision about his future, The Mirror now report that Real Madrid are "confident" of acquiring his signature this summer.
"Real Madrid are the best club in the world".
The 28 year old has repeatedly refused to commit himself to a new contract at Chelsea with his current deal running out in 2020.

After a week where Chelsea lost 4-0 at Bournemouth and bounced back with a 5-0 win over Huddersfield, with Hazard bagging a brace, Cole told Sky Sports how necessary it is to Chelsea for Hazard to be on point.
"I'm really happy to have been given the opportunity to do that and I want to get back to that level".
Eden Hazard's dropped a big bombshell on his career. Of course, I hope the opposite.
He added: "Today is all positive, we played a full 90 minutes, defended very well, so it was a very good match but we need consistency now, we have to continue to play with the same mentality in all the matches".
