Finally, the day most Real Madrid fans were expecting has come, as Los Blancos have agreed to meet Chelsea's asking price for Eden Hazard and it's just a matter of time before they officially announce his signing.

The Blues were demanding as much as 115 million for the Belgian striker, something Florentino Perez had deemed as a huge figure considering his deal was set to expire in 2020.

However, with Hazard keen and desperate to complete his dream move to Real Madrid, and him being a longtime target for Zinedine Zidane and Los Merengues, Perez eventually agreed to meet Chelsea's demands.

Now, according to Spanish outlet As, Real Madrid will wait until June 3rd before making Hazard's signing official, a few days after the Belgian takes on Arsenal for the UEFA Europa League final.

Hazard will try and give Chelsea supporters one last trophy after seven incredible seasons with the club before finally playing for the team he grew up rooting for.

The forward has had nothing but praise for Zinedine Zidane over the course of his career, and he'll be thrilled to follow the Frenchman's commands as he tries to get Real Madrid back to their former dominant self.

Moreover, Florentino Perez is set to be incredibly busy in the upcoming weeks, with the team also eyeing a move for Paul Pogba, Christian Eriksen, and Ferland Mendy, after they already secured the signing of Luka Jovic.

Real Madrid is going to look a lot different next year following one of the most disappointing campaigns in their history, going empty-handed after completely dominating Europe over the past 5 years or so.

Now, commanded by Hazard, this team will rise from the ashes and will have another shot at the UEFA Champions League, even if Gareth Bale winds up leaving the club as expected.
