Eden Hazard brought British barber Ahmed Alsanawi to Brussels for a fresh trim ahead of his unveiling at Real Madrid on Thursday evening.
The former Chelsea star signed for Real in a deal potentially worth up to £150million last week, and he is now ready to be paraded in front of the fans for the first time.
Ensuring he looks at his best, Hazard called upon British-based A-Star Barbers for a fresh trim while on international duty with Belgium in Brussels.
Alsanawi documented his journey to mainland Europe on his Instagram story, before posting a video filmed by Hazard during his haircut.
In the video, the barber asks Hazard if he’s ready, to which the player replies: ‘I’m ready’.
His move to Real Madrid is likely to be one of, if not the, biggest of the transfer window, as Zinedine Zidane looks to significantly improve his squad.
The Bernabeu giants have already brought in Eder Militao, Rodrygo, Luka Jovic and Ferland Mendy, taking their summer spending up to an incredible £344m already.
Hazard’s old side Chelsea, meanwhile, are currently under a two-window transfer ban, meaning they cannot replace their influential forward for a year – pending an appeal.
Hazard, with his fresh haircut, will pose alongside his new No 7 shirt at the Bernabeu on Thursday night when he is unveiled in front of the media.
Real will roll out the red-carpet treatment for the winger when is officially presented. The Belgium star became the club’s record-signing when his £150million move from Chelsea was finally concluded last Friday.
Spanish outlet Marca are claiming that Madrid have laid down some ambitious plans to give Hazard the grandest of welcomes with hopes of outdoing Cristiano Ronaldo’s unveiling back in 2009.
70,000 fans turned out for the presentation of Portugal star Ronaldo but Madrid are aiming to surpass that. Hazard’s presentation on Thursday has been scheduled for 7pm local time in a bid to make it more accessible for fans to attend.
