Roberto Martinez: Eden Hazard and Real Madrid a perfect fit

Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez has hailed Eden Hazard after his move to Real Madrid describing club and player as  "the perfect fit". 

Hazard joined Real last Friday on a five-year contract and is set to be officially unveiled at the Bernabeu on Thursday, June 13 and Martinez believes the forward will be a perfect fit for the Spanish giants.

"For Real Madrid, they are getting a phenomenal footballer and for Eden, there couldn't have been too many new chapters in his career," he told Sky Sports

"He always said that he was feeling at home in London with Chelsea so probably it was the only place that he could have gone and the place where he always had the dream of going.

"I think it is the perfect fit. Everything has been commanded with incredible respect in every party and I think that's the way things should be done. Now we all look forward to seeing how his new chapter at Real Madrid will start."

Reports say Real are also interested in Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba to join Hazard at the club.
