Belgium coach Martinez: No better time for Hazard to leave Chelsea

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez believes Eden Hazard should leave Chelsea this summer.

Hazard has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Martinez believes now is the right time to leave.

He told El Larguero: "It could be the best time [for Hazard] to try something different.

"He is a player who has maturity and a lot of leadership. His play is based on talent.

"Hazard could carry a new project anywhere in the world. He is at the best moment of his career. He could fit in any team in the world.

"Players need new challenges and new projects. Perhaps it's a good time for [Chelsea] and for Eden [to split]. I would be very surprised if Chelsea didn't have big offers for him right now."
