Real Madrid are set to unveil the signing of Chelsea forward Eden Hazard on June 3rd, provided there are no complications in the coming days.
The Belgian is in Baku, Azerbaijan, preparing to take on Arsenal in the Europa League final in what has long been touted as his final game for the Blues. It is understood that, as it stands, Hazard is wholly focussed on securing his sixth major trophy with the club, but once Wednesday's clash is over, he will finally make his move to Madrid.
According to reports from AS
Speaking to Onda Cero, as relayed by the same publication
He proclaimed: "How are we supposed to talk to a club who are playing in a final? We've been trying for a number of years to make Hazard a Real Madrid player, but we haven't achieved it yet.
"I'd really like Hazard to come to Real Madrid

That nationality of team they haven't beaten? You guessed it. 臘♂️ https://t.co/AEthMgfOaJ
However, this feels like a sincere underplaying of the situation, with the 28-year-old's future, as per the player himself, long been decided.
Despite this, Hazard's loyalty to the west London side has never been in doubt. Even with his expected move from Stamford Bridge, he was recently asked if he would consider moving to another English side, to which he replied: "No chance. I am a Blue! It means a lot to me."
