Eden Hazard’s move to Real Madrid will be announced the day after the Europa League final.
Chelsea face Arsenal in Baku on May 29th in the final, but now it looks like the last time he will appear in a Blue Shirt, with his move to the Spanish giants set to be confirmed the following day.
After months of speculation the Belgian’s move to Spain in a deal worth £86 million will bring down the career on his career at Stamford Bridge, which has seen him make 351 appearances in all competitions, scoring 108 times. He won the League with them in 2015 and 2017, as well as three Cup competitions – the FA Cup, the League Cup, and the Europa League.
This season has been his most productive in terms of goals, scoring 19 times in all competitions, and he will be a tough man for Chelsea to replace, especially if their two window transfer ban is upheld.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
