Pedrerol: If Hazard move isn’t announced today, I won’t present Jugones tomorrow

Josep Pedrerol, the presenter of the popular Spanish TV show ‘Jugones’, is convinced that Real Madrid will announce Eden Hazard’s signing from Chelsea on Thursday.

Pedrerol has indicated that in the event Madrid don’t make the transfer official on Thursday, he won’t present his show the following day.

“Real Madrid considers Hazard to be fundamental [to their plans for next season], just as it is necessary to announce him soon,” he said.

“Paying 100 million euros for him seems like a bargain to me.

“It was expected that he would have already signed this morning as his contract was being drafted in the night [on Wednesday].

“Congratulations, Real Madrid fans. Hazard is going to play for Madrid.

“Until tomorrow, or until it is [closed], ciao.”
