Eden Hazard believes he has the platform to try and become “the best player in the world” after signing a five-year deal with Real Madrid.

“I’ve been lucky enough to talk to Modric through (Chelsea loanee Mateo) Kovacic and asked him to give me number 10 but he said no,” said Hazard.

Hazard said: “Everyone knows Zidane has been my idol since I was a child, and him being the Madrid boss was an important factor for me coming here.” He has designs on the 10 shirt – the replica handed to him for official photographs bore a name but no number on Thursday – but joked that current incumbent Luka Modric is not willing to give it up.

“I’m going to try to become the best player in the world, but first I wanted to be in the best team in the world,” Hazard told reporters.

“I’m not a ‘Galactico’ – I hope to be one day – I am Eden Hazard.

“It’s not important to me, it’s just important to wear the shirt, with this badge on it.”

Hazard last week revealed joining Real had been a dream of his since childhood and reiterated his desire to win many trophies with the underperforming Blancos, who finished third in LaLiga last season and made an early exit from the Champions League, before turning his focus to personal ambitions.
