Eden Hazard was signed by Real Madrid in 2019 to much fanfare. There were a lot of expectations from the Belgian when he switched teams from Chelsea. He was playing the best football of his life, guiding Chelsea to a Europa League win in the 2018-19 season and finishing in third place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where he won the Silver Ball as the 2nd-best player of the tournament.

Having suffered 14 injuries since landing in Madrid, Eden Hazard could make a claim to be the one of the most unlucky footballers to play for Real Madrid. While the former Chelsea maverick still has two years left on his contract, it looks as if his Real Madrid career has reached beyond a point of revival.

I may be wrong. And I do wish to be proven wrong. Hazard is one of the most entertaining players to ever step on a football pitch. He was playing great football before that infamous Thomas Meunier tackle prevented his Real Madrid career from ever taking off. A part of me still believes he can be a useful player, even if it is off the bench.

However, it’s best for both Los Blancos and Eden Hazard if the player leaves the club before his situation exacerbates any further, not that it’s any better at the moment anyway. On the contrary, news has emerged that Hazard might not want to leave the club. That comes from a report by the ever-reliable Mario Cortegana, who also states that Real Madrid haven’t received any transfer offers for the 31-year old.

Eden Hazard’s wages could stand in the way of a Real Madrid rebuild

Cortegana also claims that Hazard and his family are pretty settled and happy with life in Madrid, unlike the player’s sporting situation at the club.

This could cause problems for the club. Real Madrid are likely to rebuild the squad with a lot of additions and exits from the club. Getting Hazard’s wages off the wage bill could be a big relief for the club as he is among the highest earners at the club, with his wages to be reported to be around 15 million euros net per year.

Real Madrid wouldn’t want another ‘Mariano Díaz’ or ‘Gareth Bale’ situation at their hands – players who in the past have shown reluctance to leave the club.

With the World Cup in Qatar to be held later this year, Hazard wouldn’t want to waste time at a club where he hasn’t even hit 1000 minutes this season.

Time will tell if Hazard remains at the club or seeks pastures new before the start of the 2022-23 season.
