THIS IS HOW REAL MADRID SIGNED EDEN HAZARD


Eden Hazard is Real Madrid's latest Galactico and the Belgian will be unveiled at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on Thursday, as a signing that began in 2017 has finally been completed.
It has been a long-term project which got underway when Hazard was in his fifth season at Chelsea.
At the time, MARCA reported that he was being pursued, writing that Madrid were in the hunt for the player and that Jose Angel Sanchez had been to London to watch the player.
Conversations were had between Sanchez, Juni Calafat, Zinedine Zidaneand others to set the wheels in motion on a transfer that the club were desperate to conclude sooner or later.
Calafat visited London secretly to develop something of a relationship, but always did his all to avoid illegal negotiations unfolding.
Madrid have been interested in Hazard since as far back as 2012 though, as MARCA wrote at the time and Zinedine Zidane praised him as early as 2010, and the coach's influence can't be overstated.
Zidane didn't need to intervene much in the discussions, as his adoration of the no.10 have never been held secret.
In these two and a half years, there were countless visits to Stamford Bridge but now, finally, he's a Real Madrid player.
Hazard was always destined to wear white. It's said that he met Roberto Carlos during a summer holiday in recent years and the Belgian reportedly said "tell your president that I'll sign for Real". The Brazilian followed his instructions, and now the deal is done.

The new strategy

Football has changed in recent years and there's no doubt in the minds of those at big clubs that this approach is the best way to sign a player.
Predicting, foreseeing and working in advance are important, as is taking advantage of a player's penultimate year of contract.
This will be seen again in the future, and not only at Madrid. For example, Kylian Mbappe's contract is up in 2023, so the summer of 2022 could be interesting in Paris.
