Real Madrid’s Struggling Star Has No Intention of Leaving Club This Summer
Real Madrid may be saying goodbye to several key players in the upcoming summer, and one of them could be Eden Hazard. The former Chelsea star hasn’t had much success with the team since joining in 2019 for over €100 million. With just seven goals, it’s clear that the move hasn’t worked out well for Real Madrid.
Hazard’s contract doesn’t expire until 2024, but many expect the team to sell him in the upcoming summer to try to recoup some of their investment. However, according to Mario Cortegana of The Athletic, Hazard has no plans to leave. His family is settled in Madrid, and he wants to stay until his contract ends rather than move somewhere else.
Hazard knows that he’s struggled since joining Real Madrid, but he has several reasons for wanting to stay. His family is happy in Madrid, and one of his sons has recently joined the Real Madrid youth academy. Hazard is also one of the highest-paid players on the team, and he doesn’t want to give up his salary.
He hasn’t been in talks with any other teams, and he’s following the lead of other Real Madrid players like Gareth Bale, Isco, and Mariano Diaz, who have all stayed at the club even when the team wanted them to leave.
There is one possibility that could make Hazard consider leaving, though. If he receives an offer from a team in the United States, he might be tempted to take it. However, that’s just a possibility for now, and it’s unclear whether any US teams are interested in Hazard.
It remains to be seen what Real Madrid will do with Hazard and their other players in the upcoming summer. For now, Hazard seems content to stay in Madrid and try to improve his performance on the field.
