Real Madrid will officially announce Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard’s acquisition after the Europa League final on May 29.

On the eve, Hazard finished the campaign in the Premier League and told the press that two weeks ago he had put Chelsea on notice of his decision.

Apparently, the 28-year-old Belgian isn’t going to stay at Stamford Bridge, and his expiring in 12 months contract leaves Chelsea no choice but to make a deal with Real Madrid.

The question is for what money Eden will leave. According to L’Equipe’s exclusive material, the Blues will gain about 100 million euros (86 million pounds) for their best player.

According to the publication, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Hazard himself already have a preliminary agreement, but the transfer confirmation will be announced only after the Blues finish their season. This happens on May 29 in Baku, where Maurizio Sarri’s team will play against  Arsenal in the Europa League final.

We add, that after his move from Lille in 2012, Hazard has played 351 matches for Chelsea, winning two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League.
