Eden Hazard has been seen for the first time holding a Real Madrid shirt ahead of his £115million summer transfer from Chelsea.
The 28-years-old said “goodbye” to Chelsea fans after winning the Europa League against Arsenal and is expected to sign with Los Blancos within the next week.
Pictures, exclusively obtained by Mirror Sport and taken this Friday at midday, show Hazard on holiday in Marbella, Spain.
A source said Hazard signed the Real Madrid shirt, which was handed to him by a Barcelona-supporting waiter, who joked about the Belgian joining the Catalan giants instead.
The Belgium international, who is on holiday with his family, replied “No”, indicating his heart is set on a transfer to Real Madrid, before holding up the Los Blancos shirt and having his photograph taken with the man.
Hazard is set to become Real Madrid's latest Galactico as Zinedine Zidane kick-starts a huge summer overhaul at the Bernabeu.
