Hazard warned ‘sometimes the grass isn’t greener’ as Chelsea legend reflects on €100m Real Madrid move

The Belgium international has completed a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, with Pat Nevin saying he may face a "tough" few years in the Spanish capital

Eden Hazard has been warned that “sometimes the grass isn’t greener”, with Chelsea legend Pat Nevin saying the Belgian could face a few “tough” years at rebuilding Real Madrid.

A former Blues star has no issue with a 28-year-old forward having taken the decision to head for Spain in a €100 million (£88m/$112m) deal.

Hazard is considered to have offered enough across seven years at Stamford Bridge to be deserving of a move to a club that he always dreamed of representing.

There is, though, a feeling that one of the finest talents on the planet has joined Madrid at a difficult period in their illustrious history.

Hazard has been acquired to help aid their recovery from a forgettable 2018-19 campaign, but it will take much more than one player to deliver the kind of reward that all parties are hoping for.

“It may be surprising to a lot of people [but] I’m delighted for him,” Nevin told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Absolutely really happy for the guy, he wanted that.

“He’s given seven years to that club and he has been stunning through those seven years.
