Real Madrid’s €160 Million Flop Set To Leave After A Disappointing Stint
Real Madrid have encountered several injury setbacks throughout the season, posing as their biggest challenge. Despite this, the team has performed commendably under these circumstances, and credit is due to them.
The depth of the squad was questioned from the start, and recent events have put it to the test. However, they are still competing in all three competitions.
One player who has been comparatively healthy this season, in contrast to his prior seasons at Real Madrid, is Eden Hazard. Nevertheless, he has hardly featured in games for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
It is difficult to recall the last instance Hazard played a competitive match for Real Madrid. His last appearance in La Liga was in September. According to Transfermarkt statistics, he has played only 296 minutes across 7 appearances this season.
SPORT reports that Hazard has not played in almost two months and that his future may result in his departure next summer.
Hazard is a distinguished Premier League icon, and during his time at Chelsea, he was among the best players globally. As a result, Real Madrid fans were elated when the club negotiated a transfer fee, believed to be about €160 million, to bring him on board.
The transfer was regarded as a major triumph, and Hazard was perceived as the potential face of the Real Madrid team. Regrettably, things did not progress in that direction.
Hazard has yet to cement himself in the Real Madrid starting lineup, continuously battling one injury after another. Presently, it would be in everyone’s best interest for him to depart.
Nonetheless, he still has a year remaining on his contract in the summer, and it remains to be seen if a move will come to fruition.
