- Brian Laudrup says Eden Hazard confirmed he will join Real Madrid - The Belgium international has been heavily linked to the Bernabeu - The 27-year-old has been in impeccable form at the World Cup in Russia Former Chelsea star Brian Laudrup reveals Eden Hazard is already poised to complete his move to Real Madrid. The Spanish giants sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in a €100m (£88m/$117m) deal earlier this week that caused a stir around the footballing world. A couple of players have been tipped to fill the void, including Paris Saint-Germain pair Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Laudrup believes that the deal could be as good as done to take the 27-year-old former Lille star to the Spanish capital.

As I have said at least 100 times, I am at Chelsea and for the moment nobody has made me an offer.” Meanwhile, Belgium coach Roberto Martinez suggested on Friday, Hazard is easily capable of playing at a club like Madrid. “It's a very easy question for me, he is one of the most complete footballers in the modern game now," Martinez told reporters. “Everyone speaks about footballers and about what they can do on the pitch, and rightly so it is very easy to assess what Eden Hazard does on the pitch. “He's one of the best footballers in one-v-ones, brings an understanding of how to break defensive systems down, he's got an incredible coordination right and left. The biggest aspect I can tell you that not many people know is his incredible personality and leadership. “He leads in the box and in scoring goals. He never drops his standards, he's a team player with a winning mentality and he can play for any demanding club in the world. Now, with the maturity that he has, you can build a winning project around him.” PAY ATTENTION: Become a member of the leading sports Facebook group 'Naija Football Fan Zone Hazard, who may play in Belgium’s third-fourth World Cup playoff against England on Saturday, could make his decision thereafter.
