Real Madrid star, Eden Hazard, has confessed to feeling relieved after Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe’s failed transfer to Los Blancos.
Hazard admitted that the competition for places at the Santiago Bernabeu would have become even tougher with Mbappe’s arrival, adding that it was good news.
Recall that Mbappe was expected to move to Real Madrid as a free agent this summer but instead the France World Cup winner decided to sign a new three-year contract with PSG.
In a press conference with Belgium ahead of their Nations League tie with the Netherlands on Friday, Hazard said (via Le10Sport): “This is rather good news. Competition for places is already tough at Real, but with Kylian Mbappe, they would have become even tougher.”
The former Chelsea star added, “Now I have to show the coach that I am ready, that I can play. But since my operation, I feel better.
“Nothing will change in my way of approaching things. All my successes are also due to the way I approached them.”
