Real Madrid has reportedly turned down the option of signing Mohamed Salah next summer transfer market as the club still believes in Eden Hazard.
Mohamed Salah of Liverpool has hinted towards a potential exit from Anfield. The Egyptian winger also hinted at a possible move to Real Madrid or Barcelona in a recent interview. Some reports even stated that Los Blancos were ready to sign Salah next summer in case they fail to sign Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain.
However, recent reports have suggested that Real Madrid have dropped the potential plan of signing Mohamed Salah. The club believes that they must trust Eden Hazard instead to perform rather than quickly finding a replacement.
Hazard has been at the Spanish capital for a season and a half but has not yet hit the ground running. Injuries along with fitness issues have limited the Belgian’s form along with game-time. Zinedine Zidane continues to insist that the club must be patient with Hazard’s gradual comeback after several injuries.
Earlier it seemed like Eden Hazard was playing on thin ice while the club’s patience with the player was running out. The club had also shortlisted a potential move for Son-Heung Min of Tottenham Hotspur who has been clinical in front of goal and is a more decisive player than Hazard for the past two seasons.
But the report from Bernabeu Digital has now cleared the air that Zidane’s continuous pleas to be patient with the former Chelsea winger has now won the hearts of the officials as well. Hazard has been given a lifeline to turn his career around at Real Madrid. However, if the Belgian fails to perform this season as well then the club might just reconsider signing a replacement.
The 30-year-old is currently valued at 60 million euros and if he fails to deliver this season, then in my opinion the best option would be to discard the winger before his market value crashes any further.
