"Real Madrid and Chelsea have agreed the transfer for the player Eden Hazard," the Spanish club said.

"The player will be tied to the club for the next five seasons, until June 30, 2024."

The statement added that Hazard would be officially presented at the club's Santiago Bernabeu stadium on June 13, subject to completing a medical.

Hazard wrote a message to his 'Chelsea friends and family' on his Facebook page, explaining that it was the 'biggest and toughest decision in my career to date' but that it had always been his dream to play for Los Blancos.
