The 31-year-old Belgian striker, Eden Hazard, often injured this season, will not be retained by the leaders of Real Madrid this summer. The problem is that the former Lille resident has no intention of leaving the Spanish club.
According to information relayed by brand, Eden Hazard would have the desire to start a fourth season at Real Madrid, next year. Despite anonymous performances and a substitute status at the club (22 games played, 10 starts in all competitions), the former LOSC striker would like to stay with the Spanish champions, where the Belgian has a two-year contract (until in June 2024). Eden Hazard would indeed have the ambition to play the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with his national team, of which he is the captain. Selected with Belgium for Euro 2021, Eden Hazard would like to continue to have the confidence of Roberto Martinez, despite a shy season at Real.
Recruited from Chelsea for a very large sum (115 million euros) in 2019, Eden Hazard never won in Madrid, the fault of a hygiene of life leaving something to be desired, and which would have caused the multiple injuries of the Belgian, in recent seasons. After a generally unsuccessful first year (22 games, 1 goal, 7 assists), Eden Hazard did not reverse the trend the following season (21 games, 4 goals, 1 assist), quite the contrary. This season is of the same ilk, with too few games played (22) for number 7, who receives an astronomical salary (16 million euros annually) in view of his low playing time and his starving performances (1 goal and 2 assists this season).
Recovered from a crack in the fibula, Eden Hazard is applying for a place in the Madrid group against Cadiz, this Sunday at 7:30 p.m. The Belgian was injured at the end of March, and did not play a match, in this case in La Liga, against Alaves, on February 19. Eden Hazard came on for the last 5 minutes of the game. The attacker will have to show himself to his advantage if he does not want to be pushed out by his leaders this summer.
