Diego Costa insists he would not blame Eden Hazard for leaving Chelsea and joining Real Madrid.

Eden Hazard has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid in recent weeks with Zinedine Zidane apparently keen on bringing him to the Bernabeu.

It is claimed Real are prepared to spend big and view Hazard as a possible replacement for James Rodriguez and Isco should they leave.

And Diego Costa has admitted it would be hard for his Chelsea team-mate to turn Real down should they lodge a bid for him.Image result for hazard costa

“I wouldn’t blame Hazard if he joined Real Madrid,” Costa told Spanish radio station Onda Cero following Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup last night.

“He’s f****** amazing. Barcelona or Real Madrid are going to watch him at any time.

“Hazard is happy here but when a team like this knocks at the door you have to think about it.

“He’s a world-class player. It is normal that the Chelsea fans love him and hopefully he will not leave.”

It quickly became clear that Jose Mourinho had told his Manchester United players to be physical with Eden Hazard in last night’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea.

The Belgium international was fouled six times and he was the victim of Ander Herrera’s challenge that resulted in the Spaniard receiving a second yellow card after 35 minutes.

But Mourinho’s tactics didn’t prevent Hazard from producing the goods. The 26-year-old had 99 touches of the ball and recorded seven dribbles, each of which sparked fear in United’s defenders.

Hazard has been superb this season, returning to the level he reached two seasons ago when he won the PFA Player of the Year award.

The winger has scored 11 goals in the Premier League this season and was labelled “incredible” by Frank Lampard against United.

Conte’s men will now face Tottenham in the semi-finals of the competition and remain on course to complete a historic Double.
