Comfort is often the key to success, and Eden Hazard's life as a Real Madrid player is about to get a whole lot more comfortable, after he completed the purchase of a new €11m mansion in La Finca.
The Belgian officially completed a long-awaited £90m move to the Spanish capital in June, and having come through pre-season, he's in line to start the visit to Celta Vigo on Saturday.
After the match, however, he'll be returning to enviable surroundings in the Madrid suburbs, with his new property spanning a vast 5,151 square meters.

We should all aspire to own a house significant enough for the locals to have given it a name, and according to Marca, the expansive estate - the work of architect Miguel Torres - has been ominously branded 'La Casa Nigra,' or 'the Black House.'
For those clued up on the Spanish music scene, it was previously owned by singer and 17-time Latin Grammy winner Alejandro Sanz.
He's already off the mark having scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Red Bull Salzburg last Wednesday, and another goal or two in Vigo on Saturday would go down a storm.
