'What a character!' Chelsea celebrate Hazard's off-field highlights

It was announced earlier this week that Real Madrid had reached a deal with Chelsea to sign Eden Hazard for an inital €100million (£88.5m) fee which could rise to €140m (£130m) with bonuses.

A consistent match victor for the Blues, Hazard also scored the only goal to lead his side to victory in an FA cup final against the Manchester United, last year.

Scoring 110 goals in 352 games for the Stamford outfit, Hazard's dribbles often made defenders puff out of their cheeks.

Upon the player's move from Chelsea to Real Madrid being confirmed on June 7, Real Madrid requested that the Belgian FA maintain this media silence from their player ahead of his presentation which is set to take place in the Spanish capital this Thursday (June 13th).

The Belgium worldwide attacker won two Premier League titles and as many Europa League crowns during his time at Chelsea, where he played alongside Courtois before the star goalkeeper left for Madrid in 2018-19.

Hazard finally completed a switch to the Bernabeu yesterday after more than a year of speculation.

His latest trail of class was quiet at display in the Europa League final against Arsenal. Leaving Chelsea is the biggest and toughest decision in my career to date.

"The memories he leaves us with will not fade".

"It is my dream since I was a kid".

Terreur told Sky Sports' Transfer Talk podcast: "I expect him to play on the left because I know there has been a meeting in 2016 between Real Madrid and Hazard's people where they explained to him that they saw him as a long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo playing on the left wing, where he's playing for Chelsea basically".

Names like Paul Pogba, Christian Eriksen, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have also been linked with the Merengues as they look to refurbish an ageing squad that ended the season without domestic or continental success.
