Chelsea ace Willian: I hope Real Madrid magical for Hazard

Chelsea ace Willian admits Eden Hazard's departure was a big blow.

Hazard left Chelsea for Real Madrid in a deal worth a fee rising to €140m.

Willian told Goal: "I think Hazard's departure was a big loss.

"Eden is a player who makes the difference all the time, but we have other elements that can do it as well.

"We lost some great players with Hazard and David Luiz. For Eden, I'm happy because he dreamed of going there. I hope it will be magical in Madrid as it has been here.

"I think he'll be successful, I'm sure."
