Eden Hazard is taking his boundless talents to the Spanish capital.
Real Madrid signed Eden Hazard from Chelsea on Friday for its second major offseason addition, and reportedly its most expensive ever.
I think it's goodbye, but in football you never know.
'Leaving Chelsea is the biggest and toughest decision in my career to date, ' wrote Hazard.
"Hazard has world class technique, vision, dribbling, pace and finishing", Real Madrid said. It's no secret that it was my dream...More news: Watch the EA Play E3 2019 press conference live stream right here

He has been a model professional throughout his time at the club, a wonderful individual to have around and a joy to work with.
Hazard's move to Madrid sees him reunited with former Chelsea teammate Thibaut Courtois, who left Stamford Bridge in a £35 million deal last summer.
"I hope that we are drawn against each other in the Champions League next season and every season so we can meet again".
With that in mind, Hazard is expected to play off the left flank, where his supreme ability with both feet can really shine.
The goalkeeper is now on worldwide duty with his new Los Blancos teammate, and the former Atletico Madrid man feels that Hazard will prove vital in the team's objectives next season.
Confirmation of the move comes on the same day the Court of Arbitration for Sport announced that Chelsea has lodged an appeal against the transfer ban imposed on the club by Federation Internationale de Football Association.
Zidane is a known admirer of the former Lille winger and will hope Hazard's silky play and dynamic dribbling can add excitement to Madrid's attack and boost their waning goal threat since all-time top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo left past year.
