61 appearances in all competitions, six goals, and 10 assists for Real Madrid after the club spent 100 million euros on his transfer (excluding commissions and bonuses), it’s certainly not a great return on investment. Not to forget to mention, he’s also the highest-paid player at the club.

Despite two years being left on his contract, Real Madrid simply cannot continue with Eden Hazard. It does not make any sense to continue with the Belgian beyond this season from a sporting and financial perspective. There’s nothing unique that Hazard offers for him to continue next season and neither does he deserve to be on the wages that he currently is on.

Although the more, Hazard’s departure will be key in signing Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland in order to accommodate their wage demands.

At the moment, Hazard is expected to receive a run of games after scoring the winner against Elche. Even if the 31-year-old goes on to perform extremely well until the end of the season, it should not change the club’s stance over his future.

The better Eden Hazard performs now, the better it is for the club as they could fetch a significantly higher transfer fee in the summer.

A front three of Vinicius Jr, Karim Benzema, and Kylian Mbappe would be the ideal attacking trident next season. On the bench, Carlo Ancelotti would have Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, and possibly Luka Jovic (if Haaland does not sign for Madrid) thus giving the Italian enough depth to work with. Hazard’s departure could also free up space in the attack for a promising youngster from the Castilla to add depth to the squad.
