Thibaut Courtois has urged Real Madrid to complete a summer transfer deal for Chelsea superstar Eden Hazard.
Hazard is heavily tipped to pack his bags, walk through the Stamford Bridge exit signs and jump on a plane to sign for Spanish giants Madrid at the end of the season.
Hazard has admitted he loves playing for us, but also admits that a move to Madrid would fulfil a lifelong dream of playing for Madrid, and it would also give him a better opportunity of becoming the best player in world football.
However, there has also been talk that Madrid are keen to acquire the services of PSG star Neymar, meaning that a deal for Hazard would not be on the table as a move for the Brazilian would cost around £200 million.
But Courtouis has admitted he would love to link-up again with Hazard once again.
‘I [would] choose Eden, of course,’ Courtois told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad.
‘I really like him, but the choice is up to the board.
‘I do not know what will happen. That is not a question for me, but for the chairman and the management.
‘The team is what it is now. Karim Benzema is in a good shape and scored 17 goals. [Gareth] Bale started well, but then had to deal with injuries.
‘You see in the matches that we have quality, only sometimes it is not possible to score.’
Here is what we think.
Courtois needs to shut his mouth and keep his opinions to himself, as he is no longer a Blue and we not longer care about what he wants to see.
If Hazard wants to leave then he can be replaced, there are a number of options out there that will be available, so he will not be missed as much as people think.
