“We are delighted to have Hazard join us,” Michael Zorc told the club’s official website.
Zorc pointed to the Belgian international experience in the Bundesliga, as well as having technical capabilities that will help the Borussia Dortmund next season.
“I am grateful for my five years in the Mönchengladbach shirt, which has a wonderful memory, but this is the perfect time to take a higher step in my career,” said Hazard.
