Eden Hazard has hailed Spanish defender Sergio Ramos as “one of the best defenders in history” amid reports linking the 35 year old with Chelsea.
The 35-year-old defender recently announced his departure from Real Madrid having failed to agree a new contract with Los Blancos after 16 years at the club.
According to reports in Spain, Chelsea are among four clubs that have offered a contract to Ramos.
Hazard said: “I wish him the best. We were together for two years. He is a leader.
“He is one of the best defenders in football’s history,” the 30-year-old winger continued, in-awe of his former teammate.
“I hope he carries on enjoying it.”
