Real Madrid have affirmed th signing of
Eden Hazard from Chelsea.
The 28-year-old has concurred a longtime deal with Zinedine Zidane's side that keeps him there until 2024 and gets the chance to satisfy his desire of playing under his boyhood idol, while speaking to one more of the greatest clubs in world football.
Hazard joined the Blues from Lille seven years ago and quickly established himself as a first-team regular and it wasn't long before his performances saw him become a firm fan favourite.
Hazard joins Madrid on the back of an impressive campaign for the west London outfit.
16 goals and 15 assists - the highest goal contribution in the Premier League wasn't enough to earn him a place in the PFA Premier League Team of the Season, but the forward did make history at the Chelsea end of season awards.
Named Player of the Year as well as Players’ Player of the Year and also won Goal of the Season award for his stunning goal against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup - the first Blues player to collect all three awards in the same year.
As well as has being voted the Professional Footballers' Association Bristol Street Motors Premier League Fans' Player of the Year, Hazard was also named in Uefa's Europa League squad of the season and signed off by inspiring the Blues to Europa League glory, scoring twice and claiming an assist in the 4-1 win over London rivals in the final.
Having endured a poor 2018/2019 campaign in which they finished way off the pace in the La Liga title race as well as falling to Ajax in the last-16 of the Champions League, this is the latest show of intent from Los Blancos.
Hazard becomes their third signing of the summer window following confirmation of Luka Jovic and Eder Militao's arrivals, while Brazilian wonderkid Rodrygo has also joined up with the club.
