Real Madrid newest signing Eden Hazard wrote a farewell letter to Chelsea fans and explained why he always wanted to become a Madrid player.
“To my Chelsea friends and family, you now know that I will be joining Real Madrid. It’s no secret that it was my dream to play for them since I was a young boy just scoring my first goal,” wrote Hazard.
“Now the Clubs have reached an agreement 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,” he added.
“Before I go, one last thank you to everyone at the Club for their tremendous effort as we lived through every moment. To all of my ex-Colleagues we will say our goodbyes at the right time but I must thank the owner Mr Abramovich and his board for helping me realise not one, but two dreams, my first in becoming a Chelsea player and today my second, becoming a player at Real Madrid.”
The Belgian attacker was determined to join Madrid as a free agent next year and that’s mainly why Chelsea were forced to sell him this summer. He will be unveiled at the Santiago Bernabeu next Thursday.
