Jamie Carragher’s comments about Eden Hazard might infuriate Chelsea fans after the former Liverpool defender insists that the Belgian attacker has outgrown the club that gave him the opportunity to be one of the best players in the World.
Hazard single-handedly destroyed Westham United, he scored a brace against the Hammers on Monday at the Stamford Bridge in their Premier League clash and send the Blues to third on the Premier League log.
The first goal was a brilliant move executed by the maestro himself.
"To be honest I don't think you can ever stop that (speculation around Real Madrid)," Carragher said on Sky Sports Monday Night Football after the game.

"Most players see that as the pinnacle, it's happened at both our clubs, United and Liverpool, and I agree it's sad in terms of not watching them week in, week out.
"But I almost feel like Hazard has to play for a Real Madrid or a Barcelona.
"He's that good that there are some players you think just have to play at that level.
"No disrespect, but I think Hazard's too good for Chelsea right now.
"I just think he's that good a player.
"With Hazard, I think he's one of the best players in the world and I think the best players in the world play at your Real Madrid's and your Barcelona's.
"At this moment, Chelsea aren't. He's won leagues with them, he hasn't won a Champions League, but I think as an individual player he needs a Real Madrid on his CV to finish that career.”
Real Madrid has already had an agreement in place to seal the deal bring the former Lille star to Santiago Bernabeu.
