Hazard confirms Chelsea move

The 21-year-old Lille sensation has finally revealed his next destination, opting for the Champions League winners instead of joining Manchester United or Manchester City

Eden Hazard has confirmed that he will join Chelsea from Lille after this season.

The Belgium international star's announcement comes after Goal.com revealed earlier on Monday that he had made his choice to move to Stamford Bridge rather than Manchester United or Manchester City.

The 21-year-old wrote on Twitter: "I'm signing for the Champions League winner," in reference to the Blues' triumph over Bayern Munich on May 19.

He had Tweeted earlier in the day: "Good afternoon guys. I made up my mind. See you later. Thanks," before waiting several hours to elaborate on his choice.

Hazard, Ligue 1 player of the season for the past two years after his exploits with Lille, is believed to have changed his mind over his future as a result of Chelsea's European glory.

Goal.com understands that personal terms have been agreed and that the winger should sign this week.

The London-bound attacker scored 21 goals in 47 matches for the French side in 2011-12 although he and his team-mates failed to reclaim their Championnat crown.
