Croatia international, Mateo Kovacic has revealed that Chelsea midfielder, Eden Hazard has asked him about life at Real Madrid.
The Belgian midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to Madrid in the summer, with his contract at Chelsea set to expire in 2020.
Kovacic joined Maurizio Sarri’s side on a one-year loan deal in August after struggling to cement his spot in Madrid’s starting XI.
In an interview with UK Metro, Kovacic said: “For me, he is an incredible player. I did not know he was that good and he can easily be one of the two or three best players in the world.
“He asked me how it was there (at Real) but we are looking forward to having a great season together, to be fully concentrated on Chelsea.
“He is focused a lot on doing great things with Chelsea,”.
