Eden Hazard’s £100 million arrival at Real Madrid will be announced after Chelsea’s Europa League final with Arsenal on May 29, French newspaper L’Equipe says.
The La Liga giants are keen for the 28-year-old to leave the Blues on the best possible terms.
Hazard’s long-awaited “dream” move is thought to have been agreed for several weeks in all but details.
Hazard will bow out in Azerbaijan capital, Baku at the end of the month when he attempts to add a second Europa League winner’s medal to the two Premier League crowns he has won with Chelsea.
And just Sunday the Belgium play-maker went closer than ever before to confirming his exit.
Confirming a SunSport exclusive, the former Lille Wideman said: “I have made my decision. Yes, I told the club a couple of weeks ago.”
