Martinez, preparing to play Scotland in their Euro 2020 qualifier on Tuesday night, insists Hazard has made the right move.
But with Hazardset to be presented before the Spanish media on Thursday on what is expected to be a five-year deal, his international manager explained why the time is right for one of his star men to try his luck in LaLiga.
He said: “He’s in the best moment of his career, at the age of 28, winning titles in different leagues.
“He can build a new project wherever that is as he’s one of the special signings of the summer.
“For Real Madrid, he’s a phenomenal footballer to get. There couldn’t be too many new chapters to his career so probably the only place he could go and win titles (is Madrid).
“I think it is the perfect fit. He’s a player who’s gone through clubs and can be treated as a hero. We’re all looking forward to how that new chapter at Real Madrid starts.”
