Eden Hazard may have left the club this summer in a £88.5m move to La Liga giants Real Madrid but that hasn’t stopped many fans at Chelsea loving him for his contribution in West London over the years – his latest move has certainly done no damage to that special bond.
The Belgian wizard will adorn the colours of both Real and Chelsea on his Nike boots next season, paying homage to his former club whom he joined in 2012 from Lille. In 352 appearances, Hazard scored 110 goals and assisted 92, predominantly from the left-wing. It’s safe to say he’s somewhat a legend at Stamford Bridge, and always will be.
Fans flocked to Twitter to share their love with one supporter saying that Hazard simply oozes class which was backed up by one other who claimed the 28-year-old is a true legend and that his attitude is world class. Another fan mentioned how superbly both the player and the fanbase handled the transfer this summer which only emphasises the relationship the two had during his spell at the club.
Here’s a selection of the best tweets from some Chelsea supporters:
Eden Hazard has my infinite respect for this. He really doesn't have to do this.

When it comes to his departure, he handled it well as much as we the fans did and this is testament of how we behaved through out the long dragged transfer saga.
