TRANSFER: Real Madrid Former President Speaks On Hazard

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.”
