More than a week after we found out he was coming to Stamford Bridge, Chelsea Football Club have made a formal announcement about Eden Hazard, confirming that this wasn't just a hilarious trolling by the Belgian:

Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce we have agreed terms with Lille for the transfer of Eden Hazard.

The 21-year-old Belgian international has agreed personal terms with the club and today passed a medical examination. He will join the club in July when the players return for pre-season training.

So, that's that all sorted out. He can't officially join the club until the transfer window opens in July, but he'll be here next year. I cannot see a single reason not to absolutely love this. Hazard is one of Europe's premier young talents and the prospect of him hooking up with the likes of Juan Mata (and Hulk, should the Brazilian end up at Stamford Bridge) is mouth-watering.

I'm looking forward to next season already.
