The latest on Eden Hazard’s Real Madrid future

An insight into the future of Eden Hazard at Real Madrid has been provided on Sunday.

Hazard joined Real Madrid for long-time club Chelsea in the summer of 2019 for a mammoth sum.

The Belgian was expected to become the latest in a long line of Galacticos at the Bernabeu.

However, it is fair to sat that Hazard’s time in Madrid has not gone at all to plan.

The now 31-year-old has been seriously hampered by injury throughout his three years at the club.

This has seen him make just 70 appearances in all competitions, which is pretty low when you consider Madrid generally play around 50 games a season.

During his time in Madrid, Hazard has also scored just seven goals and provided 11 assists.

This season, meanwhile, Hazard is yet to pick up an injury, but he is clearly not all full fitness. The winger has not played more than 60 minutes for Los Blancos this term.

Despite this Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Real Madrid expected a lot from Hazard in 2022/23:

Romano said: “Eden Hazard has spoken about wanting to play more, but does it mean he’s looking for a move? Not necessarily.

“Real Madrid were very clear during the summer: they expect a lot from Hazard this season and this is still the case.

“I think Hazard wanted to send a message as he wants to play more, but there’s nothing imminent with any other club as of now, we’ll see in 2023.”
