'If you want goals from someone who has produced for you in the past @ChelseaFC', the former Stoke player tweeted.

Retired footballer Jonathan Walters made reference to one of his worst individual displays in the Premier League in a humorous bid to replace Eden Hazard at Chelsea.

The former Stoke City footballer, who retired earlier in 2019, scored two own goals and missed a penalty in a 4-0 defeat to the Blues in 2013.

And on the day Hazard was unveiled as a new signing at Real Madrid, having joined in a £130 million move from Chelsea, Walters alluded to his own goals against the west London club all those years ago.

"Now that @hazardeden10 has left," tweeted the 35-year-old. "If you want goals from someone who has produced for you in the past @ChelseaFC ....I could be tempted #2in0".

Walters' former teammate Charlie Adam meanwhile responded "Remember it well" along with three "tears of joy" emojis.

Hazard was confirmed as a Real Madrid player on Thursday evening, with video footage showing the Belgian sitting alongside club president Florentino Perez and putting pen to paper on his five-year contract.
