Chelsea to remove Eden Hazard banner from Stamford Bridge

Chelsea will move the Stamford Bridge banner dedicated to Eden Hazard ahead of next season, after the Belgian superstar finally sealed his dream move to Real Madrid.

Hazard officially completed his £130million switch to the Spanish capital, and is set to be unveiled at the Bernabeu on Thursday following the completion of a medical.

The famous 'Garden of Eden' banner which has hung at the Shed End of Chelsea's stadium throughout the forward's career will be taken down as the club enter the post-Hazard era. 

Chelsea fan-group 'We Are the Shed' have revealed the banner will be moved out of respect to the players who remain at the club, despite Hazard leaving west London on good terms.

The organisation told Football London, 'We remove all players banners who are currently playing for other teams and bring them out if they come back. 

'It is completely out of respect to the current players at the club and it is likely Eden will get a new one once he retires.'
