Eden Hazard deserves his chance to play for Real Madrid, says Belgium team-mate Axel Witsel.
Hazard looks increasingly like to complete a dream move to the Spanish capital despite Chelsea and Real Madrid yet to agree terms over a transfer for the playmaker.
The 28-year-old reported for international duty with Belgium on Tuesday and was his usual calm self, according to international team-mate Witsel.
"Of course [Hazard] is that good," Witsel told Sky Sports News.
"Eden is the type of guy who is always relaxed. He doesn't think too much [about his future].
"He's just come here today. We spoke about everything but not about a transfer to Real Madrid because that is just Eden.
"For me, as a player, he is one of the best with Cristiano (Ronaldo), (Lionel) Messi and Neymar.
"If he goes to Real Madrid - and I hope so for him - he is going to show that to everyone."
