Eden Hazard has ‘ability and personality’ for Real Madrid – Jose Mourinho

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes his former player Eden Hazard has the ‘quality and personality’ to join Real Madrid.

The Belgium international has long been linked with a move to the European champions and has ‘already made a decision’ over his future.

“Eden's ambitions… playing at Chelsea his whole life or going out to a giant like Real Madrid,” Mourinho explained on DAZN, in quotes cited by Diario AS.

“I can't tell you, because I haven't talked to him for quite a while.

“Let's talk about talent. Does he have the talent to play for Real Madrid? He does. Does he have the personality to wear a super heavy shirt and play in front of a crowd like the Bernabeu? He has personality, yes.”

Mourinho managed Hazard at Stamford Bridge for two-and-a-half seasons between 2013 and 2015.
