HAZARD SHOWING THUMBS UP STORY: Eden Hazard was the latest Real Madrid player to be unveiled on Thursday (June 13) in front of thousands of cheering fans.
Real Madrid ended their long pursuit of Hazard on Friday (June 7) when they agreed to sign the Belgium winger from Chelsea on a five-year contract for a reported 100 million euros ($113.34 million), making him their joint-record signing.
Real did not reveal the fee but Spanish media reports said it was the same price Madrid paid for Gareth Bale when he joined from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013, a staggering amount considering Hazard was set to become a free agent in June 2020.
Hazard is Real's third major signing of the summer as they bid to rebuild their squad after an embarrassing campaign on all fronts in which they ended up without a trophy, sacked two coaches and finished 19 points adrift of La Liga champions Barcelona.
