Real Madrid signs Eden Hazard from Chelsea

Real Madrid signed Eden Hazard from Chelsea on Friday for its second major offseason addition, and reportedly its most expensive ever. The 28-year-old forward joined Madrid on a five-year contract and a transfer fee reported to be around 100 million euros ($113 million) plus variables, which would make him the club’s biggest signing. Madrid is rebuilding after one of the worst seasons in club history and had added forward Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this week. The Spanish club hadn’t made any blockbuster signings in years and was yet to bring in a top player to try to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portugal forward left to join Juventus last season. Hazard had already indicated his final game for Chelsea was last week’s Europa League final victory over Arsenal. With tw...

Real Madrid has made official the signing of Bosnian Serbian forward Jovic.  The player has signed up to 2025. The white entity has announced it officially on its website. Jovic is 21 years old and has been one of the sensations of the season.

Kroos signs Madrid contract extension to 2023

The World Cup-winning midfielder will be sticking around at the Santiago Bernabeu, with another 12 months added to his terms in the Spanish capital Toni Kroos has committed his future to Real Madrid by agreeing a contract extension through to 2023. Kroos, 29, joined Madrid for €25 million in July 2014 and won 12 trophies including three Champions Leagues and one La Liga title in his first four seasons in Spain. The World Cup winning-midfielder had been tied to the Blancos until 2022, but another 12 months have now been added to his terms at the Santiago Bernabeu. That means he will be going nowhere during a summer expected to deliver much change in the Spanish capital. Real said in a statement on their official website: “Real Madrid CF and Toni Kroos have agreed to extend the player’...

Real Madrid’s unwanted Champions League hero

It is almost a year to the day since Gareth Bale scored probably the greatest ever goal in a Champions League Final – a brilliant overhead kick in Kiev to beat Liverpool and once again deliver the trophy to Real Madrid. Bale scored again that night and it was his two goals that made the difference in a 3-1 victory and meant that he – and Madrid – had won the European Cup for the fourth time in five years and further enhanced his status as the most successful British player ever to play for an overseas club. Except Bale had come off the bench. Coach Zinedine Zidane preferred Isco for the final and afterwards Bale left the door open that he might be on his way out of Madrid. “I have to sit down in the summer and discuss it with my agent and take it from there,” he said. The evening summed up...
