Eden Hazard Arrives For His Real Madrid Medical

Eden Hazard has arrived for his Real Madrid medical ahead of his official presentation at the Bernabeu.

The Belgium star was pictured arriving at the La Moraleja hospital and was happy to sign autographs and pose for pictures with fans after completing his dream move to Los Blancos.

Once he undergoes all the standard medical examinations, Hazard is to be unveiled in front of an estimated 50,000 supporters - while he is also slated for a press conference in front of Real officials and media.

Hazard is expected to wear the coveted No.7 at Los Blancos, who are reportedly paying an initial £88 million, rising to £130 million dependent on certain bonuses and clauses in his contract.

After deciding to move on for a new challenge following seven successful seasons at Chelsea, Hazard's salary will be doubled to a whopping £400,000-a-week in the Spanish capital.

Roberto Martinez, his national manager, has already stressed that the 28-year old and Real Madrid are a match made made in heaven.

"For Real Madrid, he's a phenomenal footballer to get," the former Wigan and Everton manager told AS.

"There couldn't be too many new chapters to his career so probably the only place he could go and win titles (is Madrid).

"I think it is the perfect fit. He's a player who's gone through clubs and can be treated as a hero. We're all looking forward to how that new chapter at Real Madrid starts."

Hazard is at the centre of a massive summer overhaul led by Zinedine Zidane in Madrid, with Porto defender Eder Militao, Lyon left-back Ferland Mendy and Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic also acquired in big-money moves.
