Chelsea land huge transfer win as Eden Hazard wins Champions League with Real Madrid and earns them an extra £15m fee

EDEN HAZARD has sent Chelsea an extra £15m after winning the Champions League with Real Madrid.

Chelsea sold the winger for £88.5m in 2019 but the deal included performance bonuses that could take the fee to £130m

The Blues have benefited from this in the past, earning almost £20m in 2020 as Real won the LaLiga title and qualified for the Champions League.

But a further £15million would be added if the Spaniard became European champions with Hazard at the club.

And it took just two years for Real to pull off the feat of beating Liverpool 1-0 in the Champions League final.

Hazard, 31, was an unused sub and instead watched Vinicius Junior, 21, score the winner just after the hour mark.

It was Hazard’s first Champions League medal but coach Carlo Ancelotti celebrated a record fourth.

Ancelotti said: “We had a fantastic season. We did really well. It was a difficult game and we suffered a lot, especially in the first half.

“In the end I think we deserved to win this competition. “We’re really happy. What can I say? I can’t say more.

“I’m a record man. I was lucky to come here last year and have a fantastic season.

“You helped us tonight. We are happy and they are happy.”
