The Belgian star sealed a 130million move to the Bernabeu this summer and has opened up on one of the most striking cultural differences he has spotted already.

"At Chelsea when we lost, we were disappointed, like the fans, but I never felt it was a disaster, it's different in Spain," Hazard told the Champions Journal, ahead of Real Madrid's Champions League opener against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

"I think that here the fans are really fans, football is everything to them and they need players to give everything, in England there aren't so many fans.

"Of course, people there like football and everyone be that young people, adults or teenagers are really interested in football, but they aren't so fanatical about their teams."

Marca says he has rejected every contract offer Tottenham have tabled this summer as he awaits an approach from Real Madrid.

The Danish playmaker remains at the London club but has failed to agree terms and now has less than a year on his Spurs contract.

And the 27-year-old will run down his current deal in an effort to court interest from the Bernabeu.

Though Real have previously made contact with Eriksen over a potential move, no official bid has been made.

Casillas nominated Atletico Madrid's No1 in a Twitter Q&A.

He stated: "It's the million dollar question. If I had to stay with one right now I would say it's Oblak".

Asked about Joao Felix, Casillas also said of Atleti's starlet: "He has a great future. He has talent. Of course, they will demand the maximum. The responsibility for the demand goes with the price paid for him. He has to know that he has reached a club that wants titles.

"People can see him as the replacement for (Antoine) Griezmann."

And on his former Real coach Jose Mourinho, he added: "I have no problem with him. The situations we experienced were ours. We had good and less good moments."

It's been claimed the pair have fallen out over Florentino's failure to prise Paul Pogba from Manchester United.

Calderon told El Confidencial: "I know that the relationship between Prez and Zidane is very, very tense.

"Prez did not bring him what he wanted and did not sell the requested players. This tension is felt on the players and results in injuries and defeats.

"How is it possible that 60m was paid for (Luka) Jovic and that (Alvaro) Morata is at Atltico? Or that Mario Hermoso, the next central defender of the national team, is at Atltico, and that Real signed (Eder) Militao, who does not even play?"

The Norway midfielder admits staying with parent club Real Madrid was never an option after last season's success at Heerenveen.

He told TV2: "Already at the end of last season, I thought it was not good for me to return to Madrid.

"For young players, it is very important to have playing time. In Madrid, I think it is very difficult to have some.

"It was obvious to me that it was better to apply for a new loan, which the club accepted. We found a solution soon enough."
