'I'm joining Chelsea', says £40m Lille playmaker Eden Hazard

The Belgium international Eden Hazard claimed last night he would sign for Chelsea, making one of Europe's most highly rated young players the second signing in what promises to be another summer of major acquisitions by Roman Abramovich. Having promised he would disclose the identity of the club he was planning to join earlier in the day, Hazard, 21, tweeted at 8.40pm last night he had chosen the "Champions League winners". There was no official confirmation from Chelsea last night that they had reached agreement with Hazard's club, Lille, over a transfer fee that is expected to be in the region of £40m.
