Euro glory sealed Hazard's Blues move

Published Add your comment

Chelsea's memorable Champions League victory over Bayern Munich convinced new signing Eden Hazard that Stamford Bridge was the right place for him to play.

The Belgium international, one of the most sought after players in Europe after some stellar shows for Lille, put an end to speculation over his future by revealing he had signed for Chelsea last week. The Blues have now officially confirmed the transfer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £32million, seeing off a roll call of European heavyweights.

Chelsea were always known to be keen on Hazard, but it was only after watching them beat Bayern on penalties in Munich last month that the 21-year-old decided they were the club for him. He told the club's official website: "I watched the Champions League Final like everybody else."
