Chelsea legend Ricardo Carvalho has thrown his weight behind the transfer that took Belgian international star Eden Hazard to Real Madrid earlier this summer.

In a chat with Marca, Carvalho said that Eden Hazard is a shrewd addition to the Real Madrid setup.

According to him, the former Lille player is a great signing for the Los Merengues who paid €100m to secure his transfer from Chelsea.

Eden Hazard is part of a major spending spree at Real Madrid who have made a big step to rectify the mistakes of the last campaign which ended without the three major trophies namely the Champions League, Spanish La Liga and the Spanish Copa Del Rey.

Real Madrid made two managerial changes as the team struggled for form throughout the season.

In the end, they were unable to recover from a poor start to the season especially in the Spanish La Liga where they finished in third place behind champions Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

Eden Hazard ended his seven-year association with Chelsea to seal a drama move to Real Madrid where he will work with his football idol, Zinedine Zidane.

Apart from Eden Hazard, Real Madrid have also signed striker Luka Jovic, defenders Eder Militao and Ferland Mendy this summer.
