Ranked: 10th in Premier League
Eden Michael Hazard is a Belgian professional footballer who plays for English club Chelsea and the Belgium national team. He primarily plays as an attacking midfielder and as a wide midfielder. Hazard's creativity, speed, and technical ability are widely acknowledged. He has been described as 'a superb passer' and has earned critical acclaim for his playing style, which has led to the media, coaches, and players drawing comparisons to Ballon d'Or winners Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Hazard is often ranked by coaches, colleagues, and commentators as one of the best players in the world.

Hazard is the son of former Belgian footballers and began his football career in Belgium playing for local clubs Royal Stade Brainois and Tubize. In 2005, he moved to France joining first division club Lille. Hazard spent two years in the club's academy and, at the age of 16, made his professional debut in November 2007. He went on to become an integral part of Lille under manager Rudi Garcia, racking up over 190 appearances. In his first full season as a starter, he won the National Union of Professional Footballers Young Player of the Year award, becoming the first non-French player to win the award. In the 2009–10 season, Hazard captured the award again, becoming the first player to win the award twice. He was also named to the league's Team of the Year.

In the 2010–11 season, he was a part of the Lille team that won the league and cup double and, as a result of his performances, was named the UNFP Ligue 1 Player of the Year becoming the youngest player to win the award. Hazard was also given the Bravo Award by Italian magazine Guerin Sportivo for his performances during the 2010–11 season. In June 2012, after spending over eight years at Lille, Hazard signed for English club Chelsea, where he went on to win the UEFA Europa League in his first season and the PFA Young Player of the Year in his second. In the 2014–15 season, he helped Chelsea win the League Cup and Premier League, earning him the FWA Footballer of the Year and the PFA Players' Player of the Year awards. Two years later he won his second English title as Chelsea secured the 2016–17 premiership.

Hazard is a Belgium international, having represented his nation at under-17 and under-19 level. Hazard made his senior international debut in November 2008, aged 17, in a friendly match against Luxembourg. Nearly three years after his debut, Hazard scored his first international goal against Kazakhstan in October 2011. He has since earned 78 caps, and was a member of the Belgian squad which reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Euro 2016. Description provided by Wikipedia

Eden, we will miss you at Chelsea. Thank you for your faithful service. I wish you the best in your future endeavors with Real Madrid. Next stop for you is a Ballon d’ Or.

Dommage que tu n es pas venu au barca club que j adore, mais fière d être belge et fan de toi, je te souhaite le meilleur dans le club de tes rêves, à toi de nous en mettre plein les yeux et surtout reste simple comme tu es 👌

Lovely words from a great man! All the best, thank you for some amazing years 💙

I hope you always remember Chelsea, wish you success..... my idol 💙💙💙

It’s okay, we know you’ll be back. Have fun now and see you soon! P.S. very proud of my Chelsea for not making a zoo out of a player’s presentation. I am sorry Real chose to parade you like this. #classless.

Wherever you go, you'll always remain a Blue.

This is heartbreaking for me as a Chelsea fan. But good luck Eden.

No hard feelings bro, we wouldn’t of won the trophies we won since 2013 without your great service. I just hope the Real Madrid fans don’t start booing you through a rough patch. You’ve been my favourite Chelsea player for years and i’ll always fully respect, admire and appreciate the work you’ve done for us (the fans) and the club in general. Best wishes at Real Madrid bro. You will forever be a blue in my eyes 👏🏻 Most definitely a true Chelsea legend!

MAIS N'OUBLIE PAS NOUS TES FAN DE CHELSEA Car nous t'aimons a vie Ton succès est notre succès

You were very gorgeous and special 😍😍.. We trust you ✋🏻❤️ we adore you 😍 and #Hala_Madrid
