(Football) Eden Hazard says bye bye to Chelsea fans as Real Madrid plans to ‘officially announce £86m

Heartbreak for Chelsea fans as Real Madrid plans to It has been confirmed that Premiership club, Chelsea is about to lose their best star, Eden Hazard, who will be officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player after the club’s Europa League final against Arsenal on May 29.

According to reports in France, Real Madrid have finalized a €100million (£86m) deal for the forward.

Now L’Equipe reports that an agreement for the 28-year-old was done weeks ago, but will only be made public once the Blues’ season officially ends.

Hazard also fuelled speculation suggesting he would link up with Real manager Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu by refusing to commit his future to Chelsea.

After Chelsea’s 0-0 draw at Leicester City on Sunday, Hazard revealed he had informed the club of his desire to leave for Real this summer.

He said: ‘I have made my decision but it is not just about me. I told the club a couple of weeks ago. I wanted it to be cleared up earlier but that’s not happened. I’m still waiting, like the fans are waiting.’

Hazard who was Chelsea’s best player of the season, scored 16 goals in 37 Premier League appearances and also provided 15 assists last season.

@chelseafc beat Frankfurt 4-3 in a penalty shootout at Stamford Bridge as the Blues reached the final of the Europa League.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek @rubey_lcheek put Chelsea 2-1 in front on aggregate with a well-taken goal after half an hour tonight, only for Jovic to reply just before the hour to make it 2-2 on aggregate.

The match went to penalties, where Kepa saved twice in the shootout and Eden Hazard hit the winner.

Meanwhile Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang @auba14hd scored a superb hat-trick as Arsenal stormed into the Europa League final by winning 4-2 away to Valencia, progressing 7-3 on aggregate.

Kevin Gameiro’s early opener cut the deficit for Valencia, beaten 3-1 last week, but Aubameyang swiftly hit back for the Gunners at Mestalla on Thursday.

And when Alexandre Lacazette, who scored twice in the first leg, put Arsenal ahead, their place in the Baku final later this month was seemingly secure, despite this week’s European drama.

Gameiro struck again but Aubameyang killed the tie off with a second goal of his own and Arsenal head coach Unai Emery, a three-time winner of the competition with Sevilla, will now have a chance to add a fourth title after downing former club Valencia.

Arsenalfc and Chelsea have qualified for the Europa League final, completing an historic week with European football’s two major finals now featuring Premier League teams.

The London clubs will face one another in Baku on 29 May while Liverpool will take on Tottenham in the Champions League final in Madrid on 1 June.

It will be the first time in the history of European football that one country has monopolised the two finals and means that both trophies will head to England.Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

Samuel Eto’o faces paternity lawsuit over 19-year-old girl he allegedly fathered

Image result for samuel eto'oFujiipop information has revealed that African football legend, Samuel Eto’o is facing a new court paternity lawsuit over an alleged love child.

On Mail Online Sport, a woman identified as Adileusa do Rosario Neves, 39, is fighting to have the ex-Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea striker recognized as the father of her 19-year-old daughter, Erika.

Adileusa’s lawyer Fernando Osuna confirmed on Tuesday that the hearing would take place at a Madrid court on April 24.

The lawsuit presented by Cape Verde-born Adileusa says she fell pregnant after meeting Eto’o in a nightclub in the Spanish capital in 1997 when he was at Leganes on loan from Real Madrid. She claims Eto’o, 37, who has six recognised children with four different women including his wife Georgette, told her he would ‘act responsibly’ soon after she broke the news but then cut off all contact with her.

Her daughter, Erika was born in November 1999 in a hospital in the Spanish capital.

In a statement, Adileusa’s lawyer Fernando Osuna said: ‘Samuel Eto’o has been summoned to the hearing and it will be open to the press and public.

‘It’s not yet clear if he will attend as he is abroad. He has been asked to attend by a legal representative he had when he was living in Majorca.

‘The judge has allowed official communications to be sent to that person because it would have been impossible otherwise for the court to notify him.

‘He has not so far agreed to a voluntary DNA test and I doubt at this stage that he will.

‘At the moment our case is based on things like photographs and affidavits from witnesses but a refusal by Eto’o to agree to a voluntary DNA test would go in our favour.

‘This process is a long one and it’s going to go on after April’s hearing, but the decision on a maintenance allowance is a key part of this process and the judge’s decision cannot be appealed.

The paternity claim would continue after the hearing next month.’

Interview: Winning AFCON is my target in 2019- Kenneth Omeruo

laliga-kenneth-omeruo-cd-leganes-super-eaglesSuper Eagles and CD Leganes loanee defender from Chelsea Kenneth Omeruo speaks about his stay so far at the modest LaLiga club and his next career goals. He also speaks confidently about Nigeria’s chances of winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

You have played all over Europe, England, Turkey, and Holland, just to mention a few. How would you rate the Spanish La Liga as a competition compared to the other leagues?

I will rate LaLiga as the biggest league I have played in so far. For me it’s one of the best leagues in the world and there is a lot of quality, very practical and technical as well, so for me this was definitely expected.

You play for Leganés and the club is currently facing a relegation battle, do you think that the club will survive at the end of the season?

Yeah, definitely. I have not been part of the team that got relegated and we have a good manager. We’ve been unlucky in a few games, but I think we have all it takes to stay in the league.

When you joined Leganés at the start of the season, you started from the bench, but eventually you got your chance and now you are a regular in the team. How did you achieve this?

For me it was by hard work, I have never gone to any team with the guarantee of playing time, so I have always had to work my way into the team and unfortunately someone got injured and I came on. I definitely knew I had to use that opportunity and we won that game. Ever since then I’ve been playing and trying to do better than the last game because once you lose the opportunity it’s gone.

You are on loan at Leganés in the LaLiga, are you looking to make this move permanent?

I don’t know. Left to me, if I have to choose of course I want to stay, but if not, I have to finish the season and see if I have better options and to know if the club also wants to keep me for longer time, but I am definitely starting to plan to move on to a permanent base.

Having lived in Spain for a few months now, how are you adapting to the country, the city you are living in, the culture, the people?

Yeah, it’s good, they are nice, there are really nice people here, the culture is normal like most of the developed countries, and there are nice people. I try to understand the few important Spanish words, and yeah hopefully when I stay permanent I will learn the language properly.

I’m glad you mentioned the language, are you learning the language already?

Yeah I am.

Do u love Spanish food as well?

Yes, most times I eat at home. Yeah, their food is nice and there’s other continental food as well. Other countries have their restaurants here so it’s not like I’m lagging behind, there is a lot of Nigerian restaurants here as well, so I’ve got what I need.

How is your relationship with the other Nigerian players in LaLiga like: Uzoho, Chukwueze and the rest of them – Azeez Ramon, IK Uche, and Simon Moses? How is your relationship with all these guys?

Very good, I speak to Chukwueze, Simon. Uzoho has visited me twice already, and we keep in contact. I also speak to Uche Kālu as well and I have not spoken to Ramon. Yeah, the relationships are good.

Talking about the national team now, the last time Nigeria played at the Nations Cup was 2013, you were part of that team and Nigeria won it that time. However Super Eagles dis not qualify unti the 2019 edition that is coming up in June. How would you rate the chances of the super eagles at AFCON?

Yeah, Of course, I know Egypt has an advantage now. They are a good team and also now they are hosting as well. We have got what it takes, from the one we qualified already, it’s good and the spirit in the camp is good and high. Most of our players are playing in good leagues as well, so, yeah I think we have a good chance of winning the AFCON.

And finally Kenneth, a word for your fans here in Nigeria and of course all over Africa.

I wish them a good year and I hope they keep supporting us, support the team even when we might not be doing what they want, you know others want to win though. Sometimes we drop some games, we let some games go, and we hope our fans to be behind us, to cheer us the way through.INTERVIEW – Omeruo:  LaLiga Is Biggest League I’ve Played In; Up Next – Permanent Contract, AFCON 2019 Title
