Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard would speculate about making the move to Real Madrid together while they were at Chelsea.

Belgian international goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and his compatriot, striker Eden Hazard are both at Real Madrid today.

However, they also share their previous club too.

The pair were both on the books at Chelsea before they moved to Spain.

Courtois arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2018, the year before Hazard who landed in Spain in 2019.

The pair though dreamed of a move to the “White House” as they called while they were together in the Stamford Bridge locker room.

Courtois told El Mundo:

“In the Chelsea dressing room, we spoke about the possibility of playing here.”

“The White House, the White House, we said.”

“It was nice to speculate about it.”

With Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid said to be targeting a couple of new strikers this summer, it remains to be seen if Courtois and Hazard will still be teammates next season.
