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

The Belgian captain was signed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Real Madrid for Juventus.

Hazard has been told he can’t replace Ronaldo at Real Madrid because he is a different type of player to Ronaldo.

“He will not score 50 goals a year because that’s now how they [Real Madrid] play football,” former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told BeIN Sports.

“They need another goal scorer in Real Madrid because Benzema is now 32 and if they had someone younger around him to score the goals, maybe they could do very well.

“Eden Hazard is an exceptional player to create chances and to sometimes finish when he needs to, in big games. He’s not scared of anybody – I don’t think Real have yet to see the real Hazard, he’s not as sharp physically as he can be.”

“That’s why I believe they will discover the real Hazard,” Wenger concluded.
