Eden Hazard, Real Madrid

In difficulty at Real Madrid, is Eden Hazard living his last months in the workforce of the club in the Spanish capital? Appeared only nine times in all competitions since the start of the 2022-2023 season, for five small La Liga games, the Belgian attacking midfielder still has a current contract until June 2024 with Casa Blanca.

Despite a very complicated situation, the 32-year-old does not intend to leave the White House in the offseason, a posture which could well go against the ambitions of the leaders towards him. According to the information given by the newspaper acethe reigning Spanish champion would consider a departure from the Red Devil, and this for a very specific reason.

75 matches since 2019

Real Madrid would like to separate from the former Chelsea resident in order to finance the extension of the Spanish winger Marco Asensio, at the end of the contract next June, and to ensure the return of Brahim Diaz, loaned to the Italians of the AC Milan. To achieve its ends and recover cash, the Casa Blanca could release Eden Hazard from his commitment and thus reduce his payroll. In other words, the recent international retiree would no longer fit into the plans of the last winner of the Champions League.

Enlisted for the sum of 115 million euros during the 2019 summer transfer window, the Madrid number 7 was satisfied with 75 matches in all competitions, for 7 goals. It must be said that Eden Hazard was not helped in his challenge by repeated injuries. If this season, physical problems left him alone, the Italian coach did not want to give him great confidence. Last Saturday, the man with 126 caps and 33 goals with Belgium remained on the bench during the victory against Celta Vigo (2-0), in a meeting of the 30th day of La Liga.
