Former Chelsea and Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has congratulated Eden Hazard following his move to Real Madrid.
On Friday, Chelsea confirmed Hazard’s departure to Madrid after the two clubs reached an agreement of a deal which could rise to £130million. The Spaniard spent nearly five years at Stamford Bridge with Hazard after he called time on his own Chelsea career in January and believes his former teammate has earned the opportunity to fulfill a childhood dream to play for the Spanish giants.
“Great moments on and off the pitch. It’s been a pleasure sharing all the good moments and specially the not so good ones that we overcame together over the last 5 years with the reward of winning it all. Enjoy your new challenge amigo!’ wrote the Monaco player on Twitter.
The former Arsenal captain had previously stated he felt Hazard stood a greater chance of winning the Ballon d’Or were he to join Madrid.
