Pires: Hazard needs Real Madrid move at this stage of his career

Former Villarreal midfielder Robert Pires can see Eden Hazard leaving Chelsea for Real Madrid.

Hazard is being linked with a big money move to Madrid this summer.

And Pires told bwin: "I think Hazard is the best Premier League player and that matches the profile that Real Madrid is looking for.

"Chelsea is very lucky to have Hazard, who can do things that no other player in the world can achieve.

"The problem is that Hazard is not able to win titles at the height of his talent by staying with Chelsea. Real Madrid is a very attractive proposition."
