Real Madrid have completed the signing of Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard in a five year deal valued around £130 million.
The Belgian is expected to undergo medicals at the Spanish club next week after which he will be presented to the fans on June 13.
According to SunSport, the two clubs agreed on a deal for the player with the initial negotiation pegged at £88.5 million.
The publication further revealed that the 28-year-old will wear the iconic number seven shirt next season and has been tipped as replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Hazard spent seven years at the Stamford Bridge scoring 110 goals in 352 games in all competitions.
He was also instrumental to the Blues Europa League triumph over Arsenal last week having scored twice in the encounter.
After sealing his move away from the London club, Hazard said that: "Leaving Chelsea is the biggest and toughest decision in my career to date,"
He further stated on Facebook: "I hope you understand I had to pursue my next chapter, just as each and every one of you should when you have the chance to pursue your dreams.
"Now it's in the open I would like to put on record one thing was always clear to me, I have loved every moment at Chelsea and not once did I ever consider, nor would I have left for any other club."
Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said: "The memories he leaves us with will not fade.
"He provided all who watched Chelsea play with great entertainment and many match-winning contributions, and for that we thank Eden enormously.
"He has been a model professional throughout his time at the club, a wonderful individual to have around and a joy to work with."
In seven seasons at Chelsea, Hazard, whose Blues contract was due to expire in a year, won the Premier League and Europa League twice, the FA Cup and League Cup.
He was also named Chelsea's Player of the Year on four occasions.
"Although it is with sadness we say goodbye to Eden and we made it absolutely clear to him the club wished him to stay, we respect the decision he has made to take on a new challenge in a different country and follow his childhood dream of playing for Real Madrid," Granovskaia added.
