Chelsea forward Willian has revealed that everyone expected Eden Hazard to leave for Real Madrid.
In a recent interview with ESPN Brasil, Willian revealed details about how he lived his entire adult life in England and how it affected his personality. He also talked about the days and months before Hazard leaving Stamford Bridge, and how everyone expected him to leave.
“By the time speculation started, we already knew. He had this desire to play for Real Madrid, it was something we were waiting for.
“Of course, it was certainly very bad to lose him as a good friend and workmate. But that was it: sad on the one hand and happy on the other.
“Hazard has been unfortunate with two injuries. We played together for six years and lived special moments together. He’s a guy who’s still my friend today.”
