Chelsea has refused to agree on terms with Real Madrid on the deal to sign Eden Hazard as both parties are still far from reaching a consensus.
The Blues directors are holding on €120m valuation for their best player and Real Madrid is not willing to meet the valuation for the Belgian captain who is about to enter the final year of his contract.

AS says expectations of a quick agreement after Chelsea's triumphant Europa League final are effectively over. Hopes of a Monday presentation at the Bernabeu are now scrapped as the Chelsea board are unwilling to lower their valuation for their best attacker.
Real Madrid is convinced they will sign Hazard before next week but have been warned by Hazard’s agents that they should not expect a smooth sail.
Negotiations are now expected to drag through the weekend as the Blues push for a €120m valuation to be met.
