Real Madrid Fans Chant For Kylian Mbappe At Eden Hazard's Official Unveiling

50,000 Real Madrid fans packed into the Bernabeu to see Eden Hazard's official unveiling as a Galactico and yet many were chanting for PSG's Kylian Mbappe.

Having passed his medical examinations at the La Moraleja and then presented in front of his family, media and Real Madrid chiefs, Real's new signing was shown off to the supporters who queued up to see him in the flesh.

And while there was an impressive turnout and a huge reaction to Hazard, some Real fans could be heard chanting "Queremos Mbappe" which translates to "We want Mbappe" - during the presentation.

The fact they were demanding for Mbappe when they were supposed to celebrating the arrival of one of the very best players in the world led to plenty of stick on social media.

There was, however, a huge eruption of noise when Hazard kissed the Real Madrid badge in front of the Los Blancos faithful so it wasn't all bad for the Belgian.

Hazard speaking in French after saying 'Hello' in Spanish at his ceremony, said: "Thanks to the president, my friends and family. I look forward to pulling on this shirt. Since I was a young child it was my dream to play for this club. I just want to enjoy my time with this club."
