Ligue 1 news… Hazard to choose Arsenal over Real Madrid
The 19-year old Belgium international, whose admirers include Zinedine Zidane, revealed in the Daily Mail yesterday that he turned down the chance to join Chelsea for around £12million last June.
“I could have gone last June, but I was not ready to make that big leap,” he said.
“If I do leave at the end of the season, I don’t want to go somewhere where I will be on the bench. I am young, not 20 until next month, and it will be difficult to break through in a team like Real, where Ronaldo and Kaka will be my competitors. But there are teams like Arsenal, where youngsters can grow more easily into the first team and make their mark.”
