The media wave is awash with reports that Chelsea have reached an agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of Eden Hazard. We are all too familiar with Hazard donning our Blue Jersey but how will the Belgian look in a Real Madrid shirt?
Chelsea and Madrid have been locked in talks over a potential move for Hazard but a breakthrough appear to be in sight for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit.
Hazard had rebuffed contract extension deals offered to him by Chelsea and he laid bare his desire to complete a switch after they thumped Arsenal to win the Europa league in Baku.
According to the Telegraph, Chelsea will receive a total package of £130m including sign on fee and bonuses from Real Madrid for Hazard. The Blues are in the court of arbitration for sports in other to appeal a transfer ban – if they succeed, they are likely going to reinvest the stated income on signing of players.
Hazard is seen as the ideal replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who departed the club to join Juventus last season. The Belgian is expected to wear the coveted no.7 Jersey for Real Madrid next season and play on any of the flanks.
Hazard has idolised Zinedine Zidane since he was a kid and it is widely claimed that the Madrid boss is also a huge admirer of the Belgian.
Real Madrid finished third in the La Liga last season but the hope of the fans have surged with the imminent arrival of Hazard and many have begun fantasizing how the player will look wearing their Jersey. Below is a mock up picture of the star donning a Madrid shirt.
