Hazard could never win Ballon d'Or at Chelsea but he can win everything at Real Madrid - Fabregas

The former Blues man wants to push the Belgian talisman to become the best in the world after moving on this summer

Cesc Fabregas has urged former Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard to move to Real Madrid, stating that the Spanish capital is the perfect stage for the attacker to win the Ballon d'Or and truly announce himself as one of football's best.

The Blues have set their asking price for the Belgian at €130 million (£115m/$145m) despite him entering the final year of his contract, with talks currently ongoing over a move that will see the 28-year-old link up with his idol Zinedine Zidane.

Fabregas, meanwhile, left Chelsea for Monaco in January, but made the trip to Baku to see Hazard steal the headlines in a Europa League final match-up between two of the Spaniard's former teams.

A man who emerged a two-goal hero in a 4-1 win over Arsenal revealed after the victory that he may have played his last game for the Stamford Bridge side, and Fabregas is excited to see what his good friend can achieve in La Liga.

"It is a difficult situation and a difficult opinion for me to have,” Fabregas told Goal. “He has been at Chelsea – and I don't want people to think I am being critical of the club here – but I think it is time that Eden leaves and tries something else.

"I know he always says he doesn't care about the Ballon d'Or, but deep down it is something that I think every player feels would be a nice thing. I think I believe more than he does that he can win the Ballon d'Or, definitely. I know his ability. I know what he can do. I have played with the very best.

"I know that the talent is there. Now this year he has scored a lot of goals as well. He got a lot of assists, his link up is great. He has got everything in his locker to be the best. That's why I want him to be the best. That's why I think he deserves a team at his right level to allow him to be the best.

"I think at Chelsea, he could never win it. Not because Chelsea is not good enough or anything like that but there are teams and clubs that are so big with their image around the world that it makes a big difference. I think that at Real Madrid that Eden would win everything.

"He would kill it. He would be brilliant. I have no doubts. He is 28 - it is his last chance to have this. It is now or never. The other option is to stay at Chelsea, which could be a great move for him but only if he really wants it, is happy and he believes in the future of the team.
