Belgium manager encourages Hazard to leave Chelsea

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez reckons now is the perfect time for Chelsea star Eden Hazard to leave Stamford Bridge and try something different at another club.

Hazard was in superb form for his Country this summer at the World Cup, and he has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid for several months now.

The 27-year-old attacker has been stalling on signing a new deal with the Blues for the best part of a year now, and he hinted after his sides 2-0 victory over England in the World Cup third place playoff, that now might be the right time for him to seek pastures new.

Martinez reckons Hazard is such a top player that he has enough talent to fit into any elite side:

“It could be the best time [for Hazard] to try something different,” Martinez told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

“He is a player who has maturity and a lot of leadership. His play is based on talent. Hazard could carry a new project anywhere in the world. He is at the best moment of his career. He could fit in any team in the world.”
