Eden Hazard left Chelsea for Real Madrid this summer after seven years at Stamford Bridge.

Real Madrid signed Eden Hazard for a whopping £150million including add-ons with the 28 year old taking home £400,000 weekly.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed Hazard turned down better offers from Chelsea’s Premier League rivals to join Real Madrid.

Azpilicueta said, according to The Sun: “Honestly, the times that he had to cope with the rumours.

“He always showed his desire not to sign for an English team, even if he could have better contracts. He has never been a selfish person.

“He always had this dream to play for Real Madrid and we will see what happens.

“But I think he has been very honest until the last day.

“That’s why the fans they love him because he didn’t play with the club, he didn’t move for another contract.

“He just always gives his best. He was very clear with the club and that’s why the club is also happy with him.

“Obviously it is a big opportunity for him. He has been amazing for us and I hope he still wins trophies in Real Madrid.”

Azpilicueta added: “Very sad. Amazing person, amazing player.

“He has been a very important part of our team. A very good friend of mine, very close.

“We arrived here seven years ago together from France and you know if that moment comes obviously I will be very sad.”
