Eden Hazard successfully passes checkup in Madrid


Real Madrid have announced the official presentation of Eden Hazard will take place on Thursday at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Club's Director of Institutional Relations, Emilio Butragueño, joined the Belgian forward and addressed him as follows: "Welcome to Real Madrid, we're thrilled to have you here with us. A uniquely talented player with extraordinary quality comes to play at our club", he said, per the Sun.

"I'm not a galactico, not yet", Hazard told the media afterwards. In football you can always improve, you never reach the limit.

"I just like the fact that the good guys now and again are allowed to shine and be special, and I liked his personality as well".

"The price does not bring more pressure, I've not really thought about that". "I hope I will be one day".

The Belgian completed his long-awaited move to Real last week, signing for £88m plus add-ons in a five-year deal.

"He's one of the best [forwards] in the world and I hope to learn a lot from him", Jovic said about Karim Benzema.

"I've talked to Modric through [Mateo] Kovacic".

Real face Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in the International Champions Cup friendlies in July, and also face Tottenham in the Audi Cup.

The boyhood Madrid fan said that current coach Zinedine Zidane had been "my idol", while denying that he should perhaps have moved to the Bernabeu at an earlier point in his career.

"I arrive as a new player". I think things went very well personally, and also with the team, winning the Europa League. "Welcome to Real Madrid, welcome to your home".

Exiting the Blues, with whom he has played for since 2012, for a reported initial fee of £88.5m (€100m/$112m) , the 28-year-old is believed to be the most expensive transfer ever conducted by the club, exceeding that of Gareth Bale .
