Foot – Market – Real Madrid
In great difficulty since his arrival at Real Madrid, Eden Hazard is said to be getting closer and closer to a departure. A boon for Chelsea, who would still eye the Belgian after his departure in 2019. The London club could also draw even more from the Merengue to strengthen their workforce.
In the summer of 2019, to fill the void left by the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Real Madrid had secured the services of Eden Hazard. Florentino Pérez saw the Belgian as the next superstar of Merengue who was going to take the club to the roof of theEurope a new time. But two seasons later, opinion has changed dramatically for the 30-year-old. Suffering regularly from injuries since arriving at White House, Eden Hazard was only a shadow of itself. The former of Chelsea totals only five small goals and nine assists in just 51 games in all competitions with the Real Madrid. The winger has become an undesirable in the eyes of Florentino Pérez. And his former club could benefit from it.
Chelsea reportedly still eyeing Hazard
According to information fromThe National, Chelsea would still be interested in a return fromEden Hazard. The Blues remain convinced that the Belgian would aim to keep in great shape for the World Cup 2022 to Qatar. Thereby, Roman Abramovich would be ready to take the gamble of recovering it to restore it to its former glory, the Belgian having experienced great difficulties since his arrival at the Real Madrid.

The coach of Chelsea would have even insisted on Roman Abramovich, president of Blues, to recruit the international tricolor last summer. But being also on the trail of Jules Koundé, the resident of Premier League could only offer 40M € to Real Madrid for Ferland mendy. A sum significantly lower than the requirements of Florentino Pérez, who would claim at least € 60m to part ways with the 26-year-old. However, Chelsea could quickly come back to the matter. Faced with the intransigence of the sports director of the Sevilla FC on the file Jules Koundé, the London club would have almost abandoned the track leading to the central defender. As a result, the Blues could have more money to spend on Ferland mendy. What’s more, Chelsea could do a really big deal. Indeed, the reigning champion of the Champions League could ask the Real Madrid to include the left side in the transaction to Eden Hazard. It remains to be seen whether the Merengue will want to separate two of their elements in the same operation. To be continued …
