Eden Hazard was on Thursday unveiled at the Santiago Bernabeu to about 50,000 Real Madrid supporters.
Hazard was presented to the club fans president Florentino Perez.
“Hello everyone,” Hazard started in Spanish, to huge cheers, before continuing in French. “It was my dream since I was small to play for Real Madrid and now I am here.”
“You are one of the best players in the world,” added Perez. “We know Real Madrid was where you wanted to be and now you’re here.”
Madrid confirmed Hazard’s transfer from Chelsea on Friday for an initial 100 million euros ($113 million), with another 45 million in potential add-ons.
Cristiano Ronaldo attracted almost 80,000 for his presentation in 2009 and while the attendance for Hazard was not as large, this was still an impressive turnout.
