His arrival at Real Madrid attracted a large number of fans who dream of another "Galacticos" team, as well as media from around the world to receive the 28-year-old international.
After being elected the Real Madrid president in July 2000, Florentino Perez started to sign several superstar players, establishing the first "Galacticos" team that included, France playmaker Zinedine Zidane (the current team's coach), Brazil striker Ronaldo, Portugal winger Luis Figo, England midfielder David Beckham and Italy defender Fabio Cannavaro, among others, who played for the club until the summer of 2005.
A little more than an hour before the presentation event started, Madrid fans formed a huge queue at the gates of the stadium, as thousands of the La Liga side's supporters entered the club's home-ground.
There has not been this much anticipation for the presentation of a Real Madrid player since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo or Ricardo Kaka, who almost a decade ago, attracted thousands of fans to their respective presentations.
A large number of media crowded in front of the gate to attend and cover the presentation.
Hazard is set to step out on the club's home-pitch for the first time, wearing the famed Merengue jersey, before talking to the media at a press conference.
On June 7, Madrid announced his signing from Premier League side Chelsea, for a reported 100 million euros ($113 million).
On the same day, the Spanish side presented Luka Jovic, in a ceremony in which the club's president, Florentino Perez, hailed the 21-year-old Serbian international striker as "one of the greatest goal scorers in Europe."
Madrid also has added Brazilian central defender Eder Militao (acquired from Portuguese side Porto) as part of its summer shopping spree.
