In-demand Belgian star says he will sign for European Cup winners this summer - ending weeks of speculation over his future.
Chelsea win race to land Eden Hazard
And last night the Lille playmaker - who is likely to face England in a Euro 2012 warm-up this week - revealed he had opted to join the newly-crowned European champions.
"I'm signing for the champion's league winner," he announced on Twitter.
However, there has yet to be official confirmation from either Chelsea or Lille that a deal had been reached over the signing of Hazard, who has been rated at £32million.
A Chelsea spokesman said tonight: "As with all transfers, when we have something to announce, we will announce it in the usual way."
But reports in France suggest the Belgium star has agreed a five-year contract worth as much as £100,000 a week after tax.
United and City had looked to be in a two-horse race to sign the player until Chelsea's surprise European Cup victory against Bayern Munich last weekend, which Hazard admitted at the time was a game changer.
