Official: Hazard joins Real Madrid on five-year bargain
Eden Hazard is officially a Real Madrid F.C player after the former Chelsea F.C forward finalised his move to the Santiago Bernabeu on Friday evening.
Before ending his stay at Stamford Bridge, Hazard inspired the Blues to a Europa League final win over Arsenal, fittingly sparkling in his last appearance for the club with whom he has gone through the past a long time since joining from Lille in 2012.
But Hazard has never hidden his desire to one day wear the white shirt. In recent seasons there have been countless cases of public flirting with the club, at the same time staying aware to the Londoners, where he was all the while cheerful.
The Belgian is likely to be joined by further reinforcements as well, as Los Blancos plan to spend as much as 400 million euros this mid year, having just acquired Rodrygo, Eder Militao and Luka Jovic.
Hazard, 28, will arrive to play on the left or the attack, where he has shone for both club and nation in late seasons.
Since signing for Chelsea, Hazard won two Premier Leagues, two Europa Leagues, a FA Cup and a League Cup title.
Zinedine Zidane’s presence on the bench played no small part in his desire to move to Madrid, with the Belgian being a long-term admirer of the French MANAGER, and Los Blancos’ mentor having comparable sentiments of energy towards the forward.
