“Chelsea has warned Real Madrid they will not sell star man Eden Hazard; even for £170 million”, is just one among hundreds of headlines on the Belgian star. With the World Cup sensation being the biggest topic of this summer transfer window, let us look at things only Eden Hazard can do.

5. Scouted as a four-year-old

Hazard joined his hometown club, Royal Stade Brainois at the tender age of just four. He spent eight years at the club before moving to Tubize. After two years, he joined French Ligue 1 side Lille where he made his professional debut as a 17-year-old. He later signed for Chelsea for around £32 million.

4. Burger-Gate

Belgium were playing Turkey in July 2010. Hazard started the game but was subbed an hour into it. He went straight into the locker room and minutes later, was photographed eating a burger outside the stadium! The incident was later referred to as “burger gate”.

3. The only Cristiano Ronaldo perfect replacement

No player in the world can simply replace Cristiano Ronaldo. The days of one player scoring 50 goals a season for Real Madrid disappeared with Ronaldo. However, The Belgian maestro might be the new engine.

None could be described as possessing a similar profile of Cristiano Ronaldo but there are certainly some similarities to how Hazard works. And Julen Lopetegui seems to know that.
