Eden Hazard can win the Ballon d’Or at Real Madrid, according to Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez.
Hazard swapped Chelsea for Madrid in a blockbuster €100 million transfer at the start of the 2019 season.
After the move, the Belgium captain has failed to impress at the Santiago Bernabue.
Injury and fitness problems have limited Eden Hazard to just 15 appearances in the Spanish capital.
The attacker had not played since February 22 due to a broken ankle prior to the coronavirus enforced break.
But national team boss Martinez is expecting big things from Eden Hazard.
“He can totally win the Ballon d’Or with Real Madrid, without a doubt,” Martinez told Cadena Ser.
“Sometimes it takes a difficult start at your new club to give everything you have inside and understand what it means to play in a great club like Real Madrid.
“Eden Hazard does not miss games, he lost 18 games with Chelsea in eight years and this has been circumstantial.
The game that was injured against Paris Saint-Germain we already saw Eden with a lot of joy in his football with a great connection with his team-mates.
“I think Real Madrid fans are confident that he will bring many successes.”
Madrid last week returned to their Valdebebas base for the first time in two months.
The players undertook individual sessions before working in groups on Monday.
La Liga clubs took a step towards resuming their normal activities, with the league hoping to restart by June.
Martinez added: “He is very happy and the footballer Eden Hazard is in a moment of great joy, he is very comfortable.
“All the steps have been taken in great detail and I would have had no problem to end the season with Real Madrid and reach the European Championship.
I see him very happy and looking forward to some joy this season.”
