Real Madrid will unveil Eden Hazard after the Europa League final later this month after signing him for a fee of around €100m (£86m).

Hazard, 28, has continuously flirted with a move to the Spanish giants in recent months and reports from France claim the transfer has been completed.

L’Equipe on Tuesday reported that a €100m (£86m) deal has been agreed, with Madrid waiting until after the Europa League final on May 29 to formally announce it.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw with Leicester, the Belgian playmaker was again pressed on whether he would remain at the club.

“We have a final to play and then I will see,” said Hazard.

“It has never been a distraction.

“When you are on the pitch, you try to be focused on the pitch with the ball. That’s it.

‘When I am on the pitch I just try to do the best. I am not thinking about this and this, my situation or the club’s situation.

“I just try to win games.”
