Eden Hazard’s departure from Stamford Bridge has been confirmed as Chelsea and Real Madrid agreed a £88m fee for the Belgian, but the Blues could receive up to £130million for Hazard should he meet a number of performance related targets.

Hazard has been a key target for Real Madrid, and has now been signed eventually by the Spanish giants who are looking to rebuild their squad this summer.

Hazard is rated as one of the best players in the Premier League and also among the best in the world.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola who has seen his side play against the Belgian believes Real Madrid have signed a very good player.

“The player they’ve signed from Chelsea is a very, very, very good player,” said Guardiola.

“It’s an amazing signing. He’s one of the best players I’ve seen.

“They’re going to have a lot of fun watching him.”

However, Chelsea legend Pat Nevin has warned Hazard that “sometimes the grass isn’t greener”, with the former Blue saying the Belgian could face a few “tough” years at rebuilding Real Madrid.

“It may be surprising to a lot of people [but] I’m delighted for him,” Nevin told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Absolutely really happy for the guy, he wanted that.

“He’s given seven years to that club and he has been stunning through those seven years.

“His behaviour has been impeccable, he is the most skilful player I think has ever played for Chelsea Football Club.

“Certainly among the very few, three or four greatest players that’s ever played for the football club as well.

“He’s given all those years to it, good luck to him in his next adventure, he deserves it.

“Do you know what, I think most Chelsea fans would feel exactly the same way about it.

“Boy we will miss him and we’ll miss his skills, being able to see them in the Premier League. But you have to live with it and go forward.

“I just like the fact that the good guys now and again are allowed to shine and be special, and I liked his personality as well.

“Well done Eden, I hope you have a good time at Real Madrid.

“I’ll just say one thing: sometimes the grass isn’t greener.

“And I’ll tell you what, Real Madrid might be a tough one for the next few years.”

    Hazard is a new player elsewhere. I respected him and I wish him good luck. Chelsea my club will bustle to find another player, may be better that him. Come on Chelsea.

  3. Sometimes some people have to leave in other to pave way for other good people, 10years ago at Chelsea Hazard was no where to be found but 7years ago till now he brought Chelsea to where they are now,I wish him well though its painful to see him at Real Madrid but at the same time am happy he left because other players will rise again players like Williams,Odion,pulisic etc wow I can’t wait for next season.. Up!!!!Chelsea

  4. One thing is for Sure….As an EPL fan,I must admit we have lost a Jewel….Chelsea will struggle to find a perfect replacement in the near future.
