Real Madrid have reportedly accepted a £33.4million offer for Eden Hazard from Newcastle, but the player has snubbed a move to St. James’ Park.
Hazard, 30, has failed to impress in the Spanish capital since arriving from Chelsea in 2019 for £88million, with injuries, poor form, and accusations of weight gain at the Bernabeu.
Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is keen to sell the winger in January, with the La Liga giants looking to raise funds for the potential arrival of Kylian Mbappe in the summer.
According to Spanish outlet El Nacional, that looked set to happen imminently after Perez accepted an offer of £33.4million, plus £8.3million in add-ons, from Newcastle.
The Magpies have already shown they’re not afraid of splashing the cash as they attempt to climb away from the Premier League relegation zone.
