Real Madrid will wait until after Chelsea have faced Arsenal in the Europa League final to announce the signing of Eden Hazard.

Hazard, 28, has one year left on his Stamford Bridge deal but it seems likely that he will not see out his contract and the Baku showpiece will be his final act for the Blues.

Chelsea face the Gunners on May 29 and French outlet L’Equipe are suggesting that Real will then reveal that they have signed the Belgium international.

Hazard has spent seven seasons in west London after moving from Lille in 2012, scoring 108 goals from 351 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea, but the worst kept secret in football seems likely to be let out of the bag later this month.

His arrival could spell the end for Gareth Bale, with Zinedine Zidane seemingly losing patience with the Wales international.
