"Hazard will succeed," Martinez told Cadena SER. "Sometimes you need a difficult start at your new club to really give everything you have inside and to understand what a club like Real Madrid means.

"Fans can rest easy, because he will mark an era. There are no players like him, he can win the Ballon d'Or."

Poch prioritising a Premier League stay

Former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he cannot rule out a move abroad but reveals he is prioritising staying in the Premier League.

Pochettino was sacked as Tottenham manager in November, with clubs now free to appoint the Argentinian without paying compensation after his gardening leave ended on May 19.

And while Pochettino has been linked with both Newcastle and Real Madrid, he says his decision will be based on the project, rather than the location.

"Of course in my mind, I’m very open to wait for the seduction of the project rather than the country," Pochettuno said.

"It’s about the club and of course the people – the human dimension. We are so open. Of course, we love England, and the Premier League. We feel very good here. We are still living here in London.

"I am not going change [my feelings] now because I am not involved in the Premier League. Because I am no longer the Tottenham manager, I am not going to change my vision.

"I still think the Premier League is the best league in the world. We enjoy it a lot. Of course, it’s one of the options. Of course, it can be my priority but I am not closed to move to a different country.

“The situation is difficult because of this. I really don’t know if it will be possible [to stay]. My goal is to continue working and focus on the remainder of the season, so that Chelsea can continue winning games.

“I have a clear head and I'm focused for the rest of the season that we have left. I think it’s difficult [to stay]. Let's see what happens.”


Arsenal in for Tagliafico

Arsenal are prioritising a move for a left-back this summer and are hopeful of signing Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico, according to The Sun.

"Absolutely. He is a player who is at an exceptional level, nobody can place that in doubt.

"i have already fulfilled the dream of coaching the best in the world, which is Leo [Messi]. As for those who could come in, we'll have to see, but I would be delighted."


Grealish could play for 'any of the big clubs'

Former Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neil believes Manchester United target Jack Grealish has the ability to play for "any of the big clubs".

“Does he have the ability to play for Manchester United? Certainly, the natural talent to play for any of the big clubs – there’s no question about that."

He added: "He’s very strong; he’s much stronger than he was five years ago, a quality player, hard to rob."

"Thomas is such a good player. I’d have loved to play with him," Essien, who plays for Azerbaijani club Sabail, told South African reporter Carol Tshabalala.

"He is a young and talented player making waves in Europe. He is one player I’d liked to play alongside but it will never happen."


Giggs heaps praise on James

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has heaped praise on youngster Daniel James, who has impressed since making a £15million switch from Swansea last summer.

After a lightning start, James' form certainly took a dip, the midfielder scoring four goals and providing seven assists in 37 games in all competitions.

“Dan's not only a talented player,” Giggs said on the MUTV Group Chat. “He’s a really good character and a solid lad. He wants to improve and that’s what I’ve seen over the last 18 months.

“Every time I went to watch him at Swansea, he was getting better and better and he’s had a great start to his United career. He’s a United player as well and someone who United fans will enjoy watching. He’ll beat men, he’ll make things happen and, of course, he has that devastating speed."


Bale 'could lead a rejuvenated squad' at Newcastle

“I still think Gareth Bale has something left to show in European football at 30-years-old, before moving to the MLS,” Rivaldo told Betfair.

“I believe his career at Real Madrid is coming to an end. The club no longer trusts him to be a decisive player after some internal problems in the last few years.

“At Newcastle, he would be the biggest star of the team and could lead a rejuvenated squad to a good Premier League campaign. He could reassume his superstar status at the club and keep earning a big amount of money."


Mata wants long-stay at Man Utd

Photo: Getty
“You can see he has unbelievable potential, talent and quality," Aliadiere told Goal. "Technically, he can do incredible stuff, but the simple things, sometimes he doesn’t do them spot on.

He added: “I think Mikel could be the perfect match for Nico because he will not let him get away with things.

“As a player, Mikel was all about quality and simplicity. You can’t miss a simple pass if you are five yards away because that costs goals and points."

Heskey's Liverpool wishlist 

Former England and Liverpool forward Emile Heskey has picked out four players he would love to see Liverpool sign this summer. Some are more obvious than others...

Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund)

"I'm going to patriotic and say that Sancho would be great, being an England player and an entertaining player as well. I would say someone like that would be great to get on the wing and terrorise defences."

Heskey's Liverpool wishlist

Diego Llorente (Real Sociedad)

Heskey's Liverpool wishlist 

Former England and Liverpool forward Emile Heskey has picked out four players he would love to see Liverpool sign this summer. Some are more obvious than others...

Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund)

"He’s unbelievable and for such a young lad who is taking everything by storm, he’s taking everything in his stride.

Photo: Getty

"He’s one of those players who doesn’t worry or think too much and he just does what needs to be done. If he played alongside [Mohamed] Salah and [Sadio] Mane playing on the wing with Firmino as another option, he would be outstanding.

"He will only grow bigger, confidence-wise, he’ll only get wiser with the way that he plays and he’ll only get cuter with the way that he finishes. The sky is the limit, so it’s up to him to keep that momentum going, because it’s not easy to keep it going."
