Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have been the two most recent additions to Real Madrid from Chelsea in the recent past. The formidable duo joined Real Madrid in a year’s difference and have become an integral part of the Los Blancos squad. Both, Hazard and Courtois also have the backing of their manager, Zinedine Zidane.
To much extent, it was a similar case for both of them while their stints at Chelsea. During their stay with the Blues, Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois knew that they were on board to join Real Madrid sooner than later. However, they weren’t publicly allowed to speak about their transfer rumours and hence kept a secret code for the Los Blancos.
Now, that both the stars have completed their transfer successfully to the Los Merengues, they have revealed the secret code that they kept for Real Madrid while they were at Chelsea.

Thibaut Courtois told El Mundo, “In the Chelsea dressing room, we were talking about the possibility of playing here.”
“‘The White House, the White House…’, we said. It was nice to speculate about it. Now, we are very eager to win trophies,” he added.
My First Season In Madrid Is Bad: Eden Hazard
Eden Hazard said, “My first season in Madrid is bad, but not in its entirety. It is an adaptation season. I will be judged in the second. It is up to me to be in good shape next year. The group is good. For me, it has been a great experience. I still have four years on my contract.”
Hazard’s first year at the club has been heavily disrupted due to a problematic ankle which required surgery. He only started nine LaLiga matches before the season went into lockdown and scored just once after revealing he was eleven pounds overweight when he first signed.
