Transfer: What David Luiz, Loftus-Cheek said about Hazard’s departure to Real Madrid

Chelsea stars have reacted to the news of Eden Hazard’s departure from Chelsea.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and David Luiz said the Belgian will leave with the club’s blessing as his move to join Real Madrid draws closer.

The Belgian international is expected to move to the Spanish capital this summer after an exit 12 months ago failed to materialise, with both club in talks for some time.

The Blues’ board are understood to be holding out for around £100 million for their star player.

“I want him to stay, of course, he’s a great player and I want to play with the best,” Luiz told Sky Sports.

“But he has to decide. I decided for myself when I left Chelsea for PSG. It was not easy for me but it was a decision I took in the moment because my cycle was finished here. I was trying to feel a different challenge and everybody respected that

“So just respect him also. He has to decide for himself. He is a great player and a great friend of mine. He came here as a little boy and now he is one of the best players in the world.

“I wish him all the best, I just hope he can stay with us.”

Loftus-Cheek also insisted that there will be no hard feelings should Hazard leave after all his efforts since arriving in 2012.

He said, “Everyone at the club wants him to stay; players, fans, staff and manager included. He is such a talent and a player who has contributed to the club massively over the past seven years, the titles he has helped the club win.

“Everyone has enjoyed watching him play over the past seven years so I’m sure the club thanks him for what he’s done. If he does decide to move on, we wish him all the best.”

The former Chelsea midfielder is currently preparing to face Aston Villa in Derby County’s promotion play-off decider at Wembley next week.
