Nothing blocking” Eden Hazard from Real Madrid move: Morata

Alvaro Morata says there is “nothing blocking” his Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard from his dream move to Real Madrid, saying the situation would be win-win for both clubs.

Hazard has been linked with a move to the Champions League winners over the past few years as a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who departed Madrid for Juventus in the summer.

Speculation has increased following the Belgian’s outstanding World Cup and electric start to the Premier League season, and the 27-year-old confirmed it was a “dream” of his to pull on the Galactico white.

“Real Madrid are the best club in the world. I don’t want to lie today. It is my dream since I was a kid. I was dreaming about this club,” Hazard told the media following Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Southampton.

“We will see. I don’t want to talk about this every day, I don’t have time. But we will talk about my future soon.”

Morata, who moved to the west London club from the Spanish giants for an initial fee of £58 million in 2017, says while Hazard is happy at Stamford Bridge, the situation is an amicable one and believes Chelsea would accomodate his move should he decide to leave.

“If [Hazard] has spoken so clearly, it’s because that is the situation,” Morata told Spanish publication Cuatro. “It is not that he wants to leave Chelsea, but if Madrid come in for him, there would be nothing blocking him.

“It is not like other cases where players force an exit, he has a contract with the club. It should be a good deal for Chelsea.”
