Real Madrid is known to sign world-class players in almost every transfer window. They have been doing it for many years, like in Galactico's days and in recent history. One of the signings from the past few years that wasn't so successful but had lots of expectations was the signing of Eden Hazard from Chelsea.

Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in the summer of 2019 for a fee of around $114 million. Hazard played only 76 matches and scored seven goals in all competitions for Real Madrid. Hazard did not live up to expectations in his Madrid career. Hazard has spoken about his time at Real Madrid and why he didn't perform his best in Spain compared to his time at Chelsea in England.

Hazard says, "With Chelsea, I'd just finished one of the best seasons of my career. I said to myself, 'Now that I'm at Real Madrid, this is perhaps the last vacation I'll be able to take.' I was sad & disappointed for the [Real Madrid] fans. When I arrived, they were full of hope. I kind of feel like I’ve let them down. I want to tell them: ‘Hey, it’s not my fault, my body gave up on me. I tried, it didn’t work. I’m sorry’.”

Eden Hazard thinks he is better than Cristiano Ronaldo but not better than Lionel Messi

Hazard spoke about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo; he also compared them. While he thinks that Messi is better than him, he says something different about Ronaldo. Hazard says, "Individually, Messi is perhaps the only one. I enjoyed seeing the one in Barcelona, ​​but less towards the end, but he is the greatest player in history. Cristiano is a greater player than me, but in terms of pure football, honestly, I don't think so."

Hazard also recognizes the hard work of Cristiano and whether that would overtrain him like the Portuguese. He says, " After training, soaking in the cold bath for an hour, no. Leave me alone, with my friends, we go home, play cards, have a beer. I play for two hours with my friends. Children in the garden. It was my recovery. If I had been like Cristiano, I would have been burned out.”
