Courtois and Hazard dreamed to play for Madrid

Thibaut Courtois revealed how he and Eden Hazard dreamed of making the transfer to Real Madrid during their days together at Chelsea. The goalkeeper eventually joined the Los Blancos in 2018, and Hazard joined him a year later. “At the Chelsea dressing room, we talked about being able to play here,” Courtois told reporters. “‘The White House, the White House, we said.” It was nice to talk about it. “Now, we want to win trophies.” May 24 marks the sixth anniversary of Sergio Ramos’ legendary stoppage-time header to take the Champions League final to extra time, as Real Madrid continued to beat Atlético de Madrid and raise La Decima.

 

Courtois was on target for Atlético that day, and Real Madrid got Ramos and Luka Modric to recreate the goal, but the Belgian was not present. “It was very, very close to my hand,” Courtois said when asked about the target. “From time to time we see him on Real Madrid TV. “It’s sad for me, but they already forget about it.”
