Real to announce Hazard deal after final?
According to a recent report from L’Equipe, Real Madrid could be set to announce the signing of Chelsea star Eden Hazard after the Europa League final. The Belgian sensation has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge over the course of the last year or so, and after many hints and suggestions that he is going to leave, it finally seems like it’s going to become a reality. They seem to want to wait until after the final in order to show some respect to Chelsea, who will be going one on one with London rivals Arsenal for the right to win the competition in Baku.
The move is believed to be worth around £86 million, which would make Hazard one of the highest paid transfers in the history of world football. Eden reportedly informed the club of his desire to leave on Sunday, after their Premier League campaign had come to an official end.
