It’s official. Eden Hazard is a Real Madrid player.
The 28-year-old has completed his transfer from Chelsea to the Spanish capital for a fee believed to be around £88million.
The deal could potentially rise to £130million due to add-ons.
Hazard has fulfilled a childhood dream as he looks set to pull on the famous iconic white jersey when he gets unveiled on June 13.
But his bank account will look even more healthy too with Standard Sport reporting that Hazard has will earn £400K-a-week, which is double what he was earning at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard’s move to the Spanish capital had appeared to have hit a stumbling block when he left without an agreement being made.
But the breakthrough was then made on Thursday and now the forward will be playing his football in LaLiga next season.
