Chelsea news: Cristiano Ronaldo claim made about Eden Hazard transfer to Real Madrid | Football | Sport


That is the view of Barcelona legend and former Ballon d’Or winner Rivaldo, who thinks Hazard would be a perfect replacement for .

Hazard has been in electrifying form for the Blues in the Premier League this term, scoring seven times in eight outings.

The Belgian international, who has been constantly linked with a move to Real Madrid, has ruled out a move to the Bernabeu in January, but has hinted he would stand a better chance of getting his hands on the Ballon d’Or if he played his football in La Liga.

When asked about his interest in Real recently, Hazard said: “I want what’s good for me, but I want what’s good for the club because the club has given me everything.

“So I will see. Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay.

“It is a hard decision. It is my future.”

And Rivaldo reckons Hazard is just what Real need and has backed a stunning switch to the Spanish capital for the playmaker.

“The Belgian attacker is a great player and could be a very good option for his ‘dream club’ Real Madrid in the next transfer window. Hazard was excellent for Belgium at the World Cup and has started the new Premier League season very well,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

“For that reason, Real Madrid should be considering his signing, especially given their recent poor form and Hazard’s stated desire to play at the Bernabeu.

“This kind of move could be good for the club and fans, as the arrival of a top player would give a much needed boost after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.

“Hazard is very talented, scores goals and assists a lot – he’s a spectacular player who I particularly appreciate.

“In my opinion, Hazard could play even better at Real Madrid than in England as Spanish football gives a little more freedom to the players.

“So if he is already producing masterpieces in the Premier League, he could get even better in Spain.”

Chelsea have made a flying start to life under Maurizio Sarri and are undefeated in the Premier League.

They host in their first game after the international break next Saturday (12.30pm).
