Ramon Calderon, former Real Madrid president has spoken on the transfer of Chelsea star, Eden Hazard.
Hazard is expected to leave chelsea to join Real Madrid for no more than £88m.
He scored twice on Wednesday for chelsea to win 4-1 Europa League against Arsenal.
Calderon said “It seems Hazard is coming and that is really good news for Real Madrid.”
“I think now it is a matter of money. The player has said clearly that he wants to leave and he wants a new challenge. It is not fair to keep a player who has been there for seven years and who has one year left on his contract.”
“Of course Chelsea are not easy negotiators. I know that quite well because in 2007 I had a long negotiation with Peter Kenyon at the time and Roman Abramovich about Arjen Robben. He was not playing for Chelsea but despite that they said the price was £35m.”
“At that time it was a lot of money. I tried to reduce it many times and we waited until the last minute but finally we paid it.”
