REVEALED: Real Madrid president Florentino upsets Chelsea with Hazard jokes

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has tested the patience of Chelsea by joking about their interest in Eden Hazard.

AS says both clubs had come together on Tuesday to present the tenth edition of the Corazon Classic Match, a charity match between the two sides that will include the likes of Roberto Carlos, Luis Figo and Marcel Desailly.

And while both sets of delegates sat down for lunch, Hazard was the topic of conversation - with Perez joking about the transfer situation.

Tore Andre Flo, former Blues striker, tried to aim away the talk to minimise the effect of any Madrid links.

But it did leave Chelsea still unhappy with Real and their methods.
