Eden Hazard caused a bit of a social media tizz overnight when the Chelsea winger ‘liked’ an erroneous Instagram post linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

The 433 post cited rumours in the Spanish press that Hazard is “on Real Madrid’s radar”, with a transfer scheduled to go ahead in 2016.

This flawless piece of reportage earned a corroborating click from the Belgian…


Of course, this in turn led to vast legions of Chelsea and Real fans flipping their lids, with the liking of a spurious Instagram post very much taken as a legally binding pre-contract agreement on Hazard’s part.

It’s official: Social media ‘liking’ is definitely the new ‘Player X not included in Club Y’s new calendar‘.
