Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has urged his club to sign Chelsea’s Eden Hazard at the end of the season.
Los Blancos did not directly replace Cristiano Ronaldo in last summer’s transfer window, but are widely expected to move for a new high-profile attacker at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
The European champions have been linked with both Hazard and Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar, who is believed to be unsettled in France and looking for a return to Spain.
Courtois, however, has insisted that Real Madrid should move for his former Chelsea teammate Hazard.
“I [would] choose Eden, of course. I really like him, but the choice is up to the board. I do not know what will happen. That is not a question for me, but for the chairman and the management,” Courtois told Het Nieuwsblad.
Hazard, who is out of contract at the end of next season, has scored 13 times and registered 10 assists in 30 appearances for Chelsea during the 2018-19 campaign.
