​Chelsea star Hazard becomes investor in San Diego NASL franchise

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard has invested in a North American Soccer League side based in San Diego.

The popularity of football in the United States is growing exponentially and Chelsea star Eden Hazard is looking to the advantage of the huge financial opportunity by recently investing in a NASL side based in San Diego.

Crystal Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye, Shanghai Shenhua striker Demba Ba and Al-Ahli's Moussa Sow also hold a stake in the San Diego franchise, while former USA striker Landon Donovan is backing a bid to bring a Major League Soccer team to the city.

Hazard said following his investment: ""We can't wait to get started and win some games.

"San Diego is a beautiful place and the love and passion the people have for soccer made this an easy choice for us.

"My friends and I are honoured to turn this dream into a reality."
