At one point it seemed Manchester United and Manchester City were the only clubs likely to sign Eden Hazard.
Chelsea have confirmed the signing of highly-rated Belgian star Eden Hazard from Lille, for a reported 32 million pounds. The 21-year-old will arrive at Stamford Bridge next month after agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.
Last week, Hazard announced on social networking site Twitter that he was moving to the European Champions. He joins German international Marko Marin in West London with Brazilian striker Hulk reportedly the next big name to follow.
Who they will be playing under next season is still unknown with Chelsea still to appoint a permanent successor to Andre Villas Boas. Despite guiding the club to Champions League glory, Roberto di Matteo still hasn’t been offered the job.
