"He was a great player when he was with Spurs but he's a class above that now because he's playing with the best players in the world in a team that dominates the Champions League.
"Why wouldn't Eden Hazard want to play for Real Madrid? Now there is an opening with Cristiano Ronaldo leaving and he's quite right that he's had six years at Chelsea where he's been excellent."
