The attacking midfielder, currently signed to Lille, has been in a three-way tug-of-war with the Blues, Man United and man City, agreeing to terms with all three.

Hazard finally confirmed he’d made his decision in a cryptic tweet earlier today, saying: ‘Good afternoon guys. I made up my mind. See you later. Thanks.’

He told media last week: “The final choice also depends on how much play[ing time] I would get and the position where I play.

“Not everyone can say that he can choose from these three clubs.’

Louis Saha, who apparently has his finger very firmly on the football transfer market pulse, ‘confirmed’ Hazard had chosen Stamford Bridge as his new home.

“Apparently on his way to Chelseafc,’ Saha told his followers.

He had earlier tweeted: “I wish Tottenham or Man United to get him.

“There is plenty of goals and assists in him. Good tricks too but he’s a very effective player.”

Hazard’s been in fine form this season in France’s Ligue 1, scoring an impressive 20 goals and providing 16 assists.
