Courtois was again calls on Hazard to make Madrid switch

Former Chelsea safe hands,Thibaut Courtois is hoping his fellow countryman Eden Hazard will follow his lead by leaving Chelsea to join Real Madrid this summer.

The Belgian attacker is out of contract at Chelsea after next season and it’s no news that he has great admiration for Reals Madrid whilst admitting he has considered moving after last summer’s World Cup, before being persuaded to stay.

This same situation with Hazard is reminiscent of a similar contractual situation with Courtois was in last summer as he had one year left on his contract at Chelsea – when he managed to force a £35m move to Real.

“It would be nice of course [if Hazard joined Real], but I cannot say much about it,” Courtois told VTM Nieuws.

“That is something he has to decide and Madrid must decide if they want him, because I do not know that either.

“But Eden is a top player and also my buddy, so if he came here it would be fun, but he has to make his choices.”

“We will see at the end of the season what can happen but Eden is a fantastic football player.”
