The new faces of Real Madrid’s 2019-20 squad move ever closer to being officially unveiled, and assuming no complications in the coming few days, Monday 3 June will see Chelsea’s Eden Hazard join Los Blancos.
Hazard on the Madrid verge
Wednesday evening sees the Belgian winger take to the field for The Blues against London rivals Arsenal in the Europa League final. That game in Baku will take his full focus tonight as he aims to leave the club he has served exceptionally for seven seasons since moving from Lille in 2012. After that, his attention will turn to his next challenge, wowing the Santiago Bernabéu crowd and the millions of Madridistas around the globe.
Hazard’s presentation will be the first, but not the only one over the coming days. Madrid are still deciding which dates are most appropriate for both Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy given their international commitments. Jovic’s deal is already complete, while the Lyon man is on track to be finalized soon. Another presentation in the pipeline is that of the young Brazilian star, Rodrygo, currently on loan at Santos.
