Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has opened up about the €100 million transfer of Eden Hazard and addressed his own future with the club which became uncertain last month.
Hazard, 28, brought an end to the long protracted transfer saga when his €100m deal from Chelsea to the LaLiga giants was confirmed by the club on Friday - as he signed a five-year contract.

His arrival which is considered as the replacement for club-record goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo is something that has brought excitement to the club captain.
"He is coming to play with us, we were already here, right? I'm happy," Ramos said, as per AS. "I think it's a great signing. He is a world-class player. It is good to reinforce the squad."
Ramos' own future became the subject of speculation as well recently when it was reported that he had notified coach Zinedine Zidane and president Florentino Perez of his desire to leave the club amid interest from a club in China.
But the 33-year-old confirmed he wants to stay in the Spanish capital until the end of his career.
"I had to go out to give the press conference. I think it was the best for everyone. The important thing was to turn the page and not talk about it any more," he said.
"The goal is achieved. I am very happy in Real Madrid and playing for the national team is not a relief but a source of pride.
"When you have been injured, you really value what you do not have. I live it as if it were the last time. It's all very well."
