Although it was his dream move, Eden Hazard’s time at Real Madrid has been anything but a dream for the Belgian superstar.
Of course, he earned a reputation as being amongst one of the best players in the world when he was turning out for Chelsea, where he managed to score an impressive 110 goals in 352 games during his time at Stamford Bridge.
However, his time at the Santiago Bernabeu has been far from fruitful, with the Belgium international netting just five goals in his 56 games for Los Blancos since making the switch. Of course, he has had a number of injuries during his time in Spain, where it would not have been a surprise if he decided to play the Omi88 casino slot whilst on the sidelines.
Things have not got much better for Hazard since the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti as manager, either, with the former Chelsea boss deciding that the winger is surplus to requirements at the La Liga side and would seem to be rather happy to see the 30-year-old depart in the near future.
And, according to a report by Fichajes in Spain, it would seem Real Madrid are happy to accept a significant loss on their failed project.
It is claimed that the club will accept a few of just €35m (£29.8m) for Hazard now, despite having hoped to have sold him for around €50m (£42.7m) at one point. That money is a far cry from the deal that saw them shell out up to £130m less than three years ago.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has reportedly lost patience with the player and wants him sold before it is too late and there is said to be some Premier League interest in the player.
It had been claimed by El Nacional that West Ham United had a bid of £21m turned down for Hazard, whilst Everton and Newcastle United have both been linked with the Belgian in recent weeks.
However, a move to the Toon Army looks unlikely presently, as the 30-year-old has already turned that opportunity down and does not see a future for himself at St. James’ Park. It is suggested that he would prefer a return to London, whilst playing for a team that is fighting relegation is something he is not interested in.
The last three years have been disappointing and rather hard to watch from the outside, let alone be the man to actually experience them. If Hazard were to return to the Premier League, would we still see the best of him? That’s a question that we’ll only find the answer to if it happens.
