Eden Hazard's dream in emotional farewell message to Chelsea fans will finally come true when Blues face Real Madrid

EDEN HAZARD'S dream of a Chelsea reunion looks set to come true after the Blues drew Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals.

The Belgian maestro said an emotional goodbye to the club after signing off in style by helping thump Arsenal 4-1 in the Europa League final in Baku in 2019.

Hazard scored two goals and created another one as he provided a fairytale ending to his seven-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

And in a touching social media message to the supporters who idolised him for so long, Hazard wrote at the time: "Now it’s in the open I would like to put on record one thing was always clear to me, I have loved every moment at Chelsea and not once did I ever consider, nor would I have left for any other club.

"Chelsea and especially Chelsea fans will always be special to me and next season I will look for your results first.

"I hope that we are drawn against each other in the Champions League next season and every season so we can meet again."

Things have gone far from smoothly for Hazard since he arrived at the Bernabeu for an initial £88million.

The 30-year-old has been hampered by troublesome ankle problems and previously confessed to rocking up to pre-season overweight.

Hazard has bagged just four goals and seven assists in 36 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos.

Reports in Spain suggested he was close to making it back into the Madrid side in time for Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Liverpool in the second leg of their quarter-final tie.


Madrid won the tie 3-1 on aggregate thanks to Vinicius Junior's double in the first game at Real's Valdebebas training complex but Hazard failed to feature in either fixture.

They are joined in the last four by Chelsea who trumped Porto 2-1 on aggregate despite Mehdi Taremi's incredible late overhead kick giving the Portuguese side a 1-0 win in Tuesday's second leg.

Hazard has made 14 appearances this season but as he steps up his return to full fitness in training, should be available for a reunion with his old side.

The trickster was last seen on the field on March 13 before suffering the latest in a long line of injuries.

Zinedine's Zidane side have league games against Getafe, Cadiz and Real Betis before they host the Blues on Tuesday, April 27.

The return leg takes place the following week on May 5.
