Eden Hazard to join Real Madrid after Europa League final for €100m


The same article states that the Blues are prepared for Hazard's departure following persistent links with Real Madrid throughout the Premier League season.

SunSport however reports that the 28-year-old admitted: "I have made my decision".

Sarri declared: "I know very well that Eden tried to do his best for seven seasons at Chelsea".

And many sources have also gone on to claim that Zidane has made Eden Hazard his top transfer priority which means the La Liga side are willing to spend absurd amounts of money to sign the playmaker.

In contrast to Di Matteo however, current Chelsea manager Mauricio Sarri insisted yesterday that Chelsea must "respect [the player's] decision". "I don't think [about] that". If it's my last game [the final] I will try to do everything.

The Belgian star's potential move to the Spanish giants has been one of the worst kept secrets for some time, with the player making it clear he wanted a switch to LaLiga.

Chelsea will face Arsenal in the 2018-19 Europa League finals on 29th May, and that is Hazard's final opportunity to win a trophy with the North Londoners.

And after a substitute outing in Sunday's 0-0 draw at Leicester the Belgium global revealed he had made the club aware of his decision.

'We have a final to play and then I will see, ' said Hazard.

"Yes. A couple of weeks ago", Hazard said when asked about whether he has informed Chelsea. "I'm still waiting like you are waiting and the fans are waiting".

"I hope he will stay".

"But I don't think it will be as easy as that because if you take into account the transfer ban Chelsea have".

"He has become one of the best two or three players in the world".
