Thibaut Courtois has admitted that he would love to see Eden Hazard join him at Real Madrid following his transfer from Chelsea FC.

Courtois signed for the Spanish giants last week after the Blues agreed to sell the shot-stopper to the La Liga side following months of speculation about his future.

Hazard has also been strongly linked with a switch to Real Madrid in recent seasons and the 27-year-old’s future has been a source of uncertainty after Chelsea FC finished fifth in the Premier League last term.

Real Madrid could still technically complete a deal to sign Hazard from Chelsea FC this summer as the European transfer window doesn’t close until the end of the month.

And Courtois has admitted that he would love for his Belgian team-mate to line up with him at Real Madrid in the future.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Daily Express, Courtois said: “Hazard has congratulated me on signing for Real Madrid.

“He is a great player and I would like to be always at his side, let’s see what happens in the future.

“If he can come [to Real Madrid], it would be fantastic.”

Meanwhile, Hazard came off the bench to notch up an assist as Chelsea FC began their Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

The Blues will be aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season after they finished fifth and without a trophy last term.
