Today’s back pages: Eden Hazard’s golden goodbye proves he’s the Real deal

A round up of the sport headlines from UK newspapers on 30 May

After scoring twice in last night’s Uefa Europa League final Chelsea star Eden Hazard admitted that he is likely to leave the club this summer.

The Belgian netted a brace in the 4-1 win over Arsenal in Baku and when interviewed after the game he said: “I think it’s a goodbye, but in football you never know.

“We will decide in a few days - the only target in my mind was to win this final. Maybe now it is the time for a new challenge.”

The playmaker’s performance was his “golden goodbye” to Chelsea, says The Times and The Guardian, while the Daily Mail reports that the final victory was “sealed with a kiss” from the Stamford Bridge talisman.

The Sun calls Hazard the “Real deal” after delivering the perfect farewell gift - the Europa League trophy - ahead of his expected move to Real Madrid.
