Eden Hazard sealed a summer transfer move to Real Madrid, as he joined Los Blancos from the Blues for a fee of £88m transfer fee that could rise to £130m.

Hazard has been battling with a thigh injury he suffered in pre-season and only made the Real Madrid bench in their game against Levante on Saturday, and came on in the second-half.

Hazard was a bit rusty when he came on and was even close to creating a goal for Madrid. Hazard also gave the ball away a couple of times much to the frustration of ex-Chelsea team-mate and goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Courtois revealed after the game that he was a little pissed with Hazard for giving away the balls.

“He almost scored a goal with what he did [in attack],” Courtois told Movistar.

“He has a lot of pace with the ball, it’s what he does.

“But I got a little p***** off with him because he lost the ball twice.”

Chelsea fans will be hoping academy product Callum Hudson-Odoi fills the void left by Eden Hazard as the 18-year-old has the potential to be a world-class star.

Hudson-Odoi played his first game of competitive football in five months as Chelsea U23s defeated Brighton 2-1.

Hudson-Odoi has been out with a ruptured Achilles tendon since late April, and he was very impressive against Brighton and even got an assist in the game.

Speaking after the game, Hudson-Odoi said “I felt great.

“It’s good to be back at the Bridge and to play in front of a good crowd because it was a decent turnout.

“I don’t feel any pain at the moment, no problems when I run with the ball so everything is good. My whole body feels good and now it’s about getting more match fitness, which comes from playing in games like this.”
