The long-awaited transfer of Chelsea forward Eden Hazard to Real Madrid appears to have been finalised as the Spanish club have begun to display merchandise with the player’s name.

It was reported that one of Real Madrid official club shops was spotted selling the official number 7 jersey bearing the Hazard’s name.

It was later revealed by Real Madrid that the 28-year-old had signed a five-year contract with the club and would be unveiled on Thursday, June 13, after completing a medical scheduled on that day.

It is understood that Hazard is expected to cost an initial £88 million but with potential add-ons that could rise to a club record transfer of £130 million.

Hazard would be a huge loss for Chelsea as he has been the club’s talisman for the past few seasons winning the PFA player of the year in 2014.

Chelsea fans are appreciative of the forward for his services which culminated with his man of the match performance in the Europa League final against rivals Arsenal.

He would bring a combination of playmaking, trickery and goalscoring ability to the Bernabeu in what is the biggest transfer so far.

The 28-year-old enjoyed a trophy-laden stint at the club winning two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, One League Cup and two Europa League titles.
