Rivaldo identifies club Hazard should sign for, gives reasons

Brazil legend, Rivaldo has identified La Liga giants, Real Madrid as the club Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard should sign for in the January transfer window.

Hazard has been heavily linked with a mega move to join the Champions League holders over the past two years.

The 27-year-old, who has been on top form this season, is currently the Premier League’s top goal scorer.

But, Rivaldo believes the Belgium international should join the Los Blancos.

He said that he is the top player that can give Madrid the deserve boost following the departure of their all-time highest goal scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo.

“The Belgian attacker [Hazard] is a great player and could be a very good option for his ‘dream club’ Real Madrid in the next transfer window,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

“Hazard was excellent for Belgium at the World Cup and has started the new Premier League season very well.

“For that reason, Real Madrid should be considering his signing, especially given their recent poor form and Hazard’s stated desire to play at the Bernabeu.

“This kind of move could be good for the club and fans, as the arrival of a top player would give a much needed boost after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.

“Hazard is very talented, scores goals and assists a lot, he’s a spectacular player who I particularly appreciate.

“In my opinion, Hazard could play even better at Real Madrid than in England as Spanish football gives a little more freedom to the players.

“So if he is already producing masterpieces in the Premier League, he could get even better in Spain.”

Hazard will hope to fire Chelsea to victory when they take on Manchester United in their next fixture in the Premier League on October 20.
