Eden Hazard has revealed that talk of a move to Real Madrid from Chelsea emerged after the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Belgian winger was officially presented as a Real player on Thursday night and he reflected on a meeting with club president Florentino Perez where talk of a move from London to Madrid was raised.  

'After the World Cup there was contact but I stayed at Chelsea for another season,' the club's £150million signing said. 

Eden Hazard has said that talk of a £150m move to Real Madrid began more than a year ago

Speaking for the first time as a Madrid player, Hazard revealed a meeting with Florentino Perez

'I think it was a good decision. We won the Europa League, it was a good campaign personally, and I just think it was the right time to join Real Madrid.'

It transpires that the pair came face-to-face in London last year with lots of suggestions it was at FIFA's The Best awards. 

Perez has been a long-term admirer of Hazard and laid the foundations of a move then, before being able to show off the club's new signing on Thursday.  

'He joked that it would be a good time to move to Madrid,' Hazard said in his first press conference as a Real Madrid player. 

'I thought it was very nice to hear things like that from the president of Real Madrid.'
