The Belgian playmaker has signed a six-year contract with the club and will be unveiled in Real Madrid white on Thursday, subject to a medical.

"My dream was to play in the Premier League".

Zinedine Zidane is looking to oversee a huge overhaul at the Bernabeu in his second stint in charge and has already sanctioned over £250million on transfers in response to a below-par year in which the club ended 19 points behind Barcelona in La Liga, disappointed in the Champions League and the Copa del Rey and sacked two managers.

During his time in West London Hazard won two Premier League titles as well an FA Cup, League Cup and two Europa Leagues.

Chelsea quickly moved to pay tribute to Hazard on confirming his departure, with his Blues career ending on 352 appearances and 110 goals.

It may surprise you to know that bubble tea has actually been around since the 80s, when it was created in Taiwan. Doctor Zhang said: "She must be hiding the true number of pearl milk tea she had".

The Belgium worldwide has been at the centre of transfer speculation for most of the last year as he prepared to enter the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will view the outcome of lengthy negotiations with Madrid as a big success, as Real had been reluctant to pay more than £88m.

And Terreur says Real Madrid chiefs have long viewed 28-year-old Hazard, who had 21 goals and 17 assists for Chelsea this year, as the successor to Ronaldo's throne.

Writing on Facebook, he added: "I hope you understand I had to pursue my next chapter, just as each and every one of you should when you have the chance to pursue your dreams". 'Now it's in the open I would like to put on record one thing was always clear to me, I have loved every moment at Chelsea and not once did I ever consider, nor would I have left for any other Club.

The likes of Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen have also been linked with a move to the Bernabeu.
