Belgian international manager Marc Wilmots has said that he would like to see Chelsea star Eden Hazard leave the club for Real Madrid, according to the Metro.
The Metro report that Hazard has been linked with a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu recently following a poor start to the campaign that also saw him dropped for last weekend’s visit of Aston Villa. His lack of defensive work was cited as the main decision to leave him out against the Villans (via Metro).
Blues boss Mourinho is known to be demanding of his players, and The Daily Telegraph is now reporting that Wilmots is worried that the 24-year-old could be suffering from burnout by the time that Euro 2016 rolls around next summer.
And because of that, Wilmots is hoping to see Hazard depart Stamford Bridge to complete a move to Madrid, where he would be given more freedom and a less packed schedule.
The Metro finish off their report by claiming that should Hazard head for Spain, he could be replaced by Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, who has also previously been linked to the Blues.
