Real Madrid signed Hazard from Chelsea in a transfer worth up to £100 million earlier this summer, but it's been an unflattering pre-season for player who has been accused of being overweight.

But Hazard's former Chelsea teammate Cesc Fabregas has defended his physical condition.

"They talk a lot about his weight. It seems like people haven't seen the Premier League for the last seven years," he said. "Maybe in pre-season things are a bit harder but you have to give him time, not just for his physical state but because he has to adapt to a new philosophy, another type of play, other pressures.

"Madrid and Barca have pressures of all kinds and I think he didn't even know. I'm sure Eden will do well, because he's a crack and I have no doubts about him."

Real Madrid play AS Roma on Sunday before kicking-off their campaign away at Celta Vigo on August 17.
