Cape Town - Sergio Ramos has commented on rumours linking Chelsea's Eden Hazard with an imminent move to Real Madrid, saying the forward "would be a great addition".

Football's worst-kept secret - that both Real and Hazard are eager to join forces - seems closer than ever to come to fruition.

Hazard admitted that his two-goal performance in the Europa League final might have been a perfect 'goodbye' after seven years at Chelsea.

The Blues are still holding out for an acceptable fee for a player whose contract expires in summer 2020.

Real are reportedly ready to offer £106 million to land their man, with captain Ramos addressing both his and Hazard's future on Thursday.

"Hazard is a great player. He is top and I think he would be a great addition to Real Madrid," he said.

"But I don't know if he's coming. I don't know what the situation is at the moment, but he could add a lot to this club."
