“Chelsea Football club is delighted to announce we have agreed terms with Lille for the transfer of Eden Hazard. The 21-year-old Belgian international has agreed personal terms with the club and today passed a medical examination. He will join the club in July when the players return for pre-season training.” – a Chelsea club statement.
“I’m delighted to finally arrive here, it’s a wonderful club and I can’t wait to get started… When they won the Champions League I told myself, ‘Why not Chelsea?’ There was a struggle between Chelsea and United but, for me, Chelsea has the best project. The team is young and I have a better chance to play there… At 21, Real or Barça would have been more difficult for me. If I play well enough at Chelsea, I could win my place in the starting team.” – Eden Hazard.
