Eden Hazard is officially a Real Madrid player after the former Chelsea forward finalised his move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Friday evening.

Before ending his stay at Stamford Bridge, Hazard inspired the Blues to a Europa League final win over Arsenal, fittingly shining in his last appearance for the club with whom he has spent the previous seven years since joining from Lillein 2012.

But Hazard has never hidden his desire to one day wear the white shirt. In recent seasons there have been countless cases of public flirting with the club, all the while remaining respectful to the Londoners, where he was simultaneously happy.

With his arrival, he has become the first Galactico-style signing since James Rodriguez touched down in Madrid in 2014.

Since signing for Chelsea, Hazard won two Premier Leagues, two Europa Leagues, an FA Cup and a League Cup title.

Prior to his big move to London, he had won Ligue 1 and a Coupe de France with Lille as they conquered a historic double in 2011.
