Chelsea star Eden Hazard is expected to join Real Madrid this summer after seven years at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard is currently on vacation in Spain after helping Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 to win the Europa League on Wednesday.

Ahead of his much expected move to Real Madrid, Hazard was pictured holding a Real Madrid shirt.

A source told Daily Mirror that Hazard signed the Real Madrid shirt, which was handed to him by a Barcelona-supporting waiter, who joked about the Belgian joining the Catalan giants instead.

Hazard, who is on holiday with his family, replied “No”, indicating his heart is set on a transfer to Real Madrid, before holding up the Los Blancos shirt and having his photograph taken with the man.

Speaking after scoring a brace against Arsenal in the Europa League final, Hazard said: “I think it’s a goodbye but in football you never know.

“We will decide in a few days – the only target in my mind was to win this final. Maybe now it is the time for a new challenge.

“My dream was to play in the Premier League and I have done that for one of the biggest clubs.”

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri also confirmed Hazard will leave Chelsea this summer.

Sarri said: “I know he wants to leave and I have to respect his decision.

“He is a wonderful player. It took two or three months for me to understand him as a man and now I do, he’s a wonderful man.

“He’s an extraordinary player. He is a strange boy but when he understands it is extraordinary.”
