The Belgian winger has not enjoyed the best debut season with Los Blancos following his big-money move from Chelsea before the start of the campaign.

Despite his struggles this season, former Argentina goalkeeper Hugo 'Loco' Gatti believes Hazard is just as good as Messi.

"If Hazard is fine, like the one I saw at the 2018 World Cup, he is at Messi's level," Gotto said on Spanish TV show 'El Chiringuito de Jugones'.

"They are both great talents. Hazard is at Messi's level if he is doing well, and time will tell.

"I remind you that Hazard was the best player at the last World Cup, and I am sure that this year he will show his level in LaLiga.

"It seems that praising Messi is like an obligation.

"This year Hazard is going to be at Messi's level."LaLiga is not won by a player; it's won by everyone, and he is going to be an important guy. Time will tell."
