Spanish giants, Real Madrid, have announced the signing of Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard. 

The fee paid for the Belgian could rise to £130m.

Hazard has agreed a five-year contract and will be presented as a Real Madrid player on 13 June, subject to a medical.

The Belgian scored 110 goals in 352 games for Chelsea after joining from Lille in 2012, and scored twice in their 4-1 victory over Arsenal in the Europa League final last week. 

In seven seasons at Chelsea, Hazard won the Premier League and Europa League twice, the FA Cup and League Cup.

He was also named Chelsea’s Player of the Year on four occasions.

Speaking on Hazard’s transfer, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said:”The memories he leaves us with will not fade.

“He provided all who watched Chelsea play with great entertainment and many match-winning contributions, and for that we thank Eden enormously.

“He has been a model professional throughout his time at the club, a wonderful individual to have around and a joy to work with.”

“Although it is with sadness we say goodbye to Eden and we made it absolutely clear to him the club wished him to stay, we respect the decision he has made to take on a new challenge in a different country and follow his childhood dream of playing for Real Madrid. “
