Chelsea's latest signing Eden Hazard has revealed it's a dream come true to sign for the Blues.

The former-Lille star has agreed a deal with the Stamford Bridge side, and will join up with the squad for pre-season training next month. The highly-rated Belgian was courted by most of Europe's top clubs, but chose Chelsea after their Champions League success and a glowing reference from former-Chelsea ace and Lille teammate Joe Cole.

Speaking to the club's official website, Hazard said: "It's a dream come true for me. I cant wait to get started and for the season to start so I can meet my new teammates, the supporters and all the people who are involved."

And, despite a number of clubs vying for his signature, Hazard revealed watching Chelsea's heroics in Munich tipped the balance in favour of the Blues.

"It's true that initially there were a number of clubs in for me, but when Chelsea won the Champions League I thought why not? I think I have made the right decision," said Hazard.

The Belgium international has won a number of awards during his time in France, including Player of the Year accolades and league titles, and Hazard revealed he chose Chelsea because of their trophy-winning habit.

"Ultimately, for a player it's all about winning things," said the Belgian. "I want to win as many trophies as possible, which is another reason why I came here as Chelsea have been winning things for a long time now."

The 21-year-old first broke into the Lille first-team aged just 16, and has since gone on to win two Player of the Year awards. As Belgium failed to qualify for Euro 2012, Hazard will now enjoy a summer break before joining up with his new teammates in July.
