Eden Hazard is reportedly set to leave the club in the summer transfer window. The winger has struggled with injuries and poor form during his time at Los Blancos, making just 30 appearances in all competitions over the past two seasons.
According to football journalist Fabrizio Romano, Hazard is waiting for the right opportunity to arise before making a decision on his future. The 32-year-old is said to be open to a return to his former club Chelsea, where he enjoyed great success between 2012 and 2019, winning two Premier League titles, the Europa League, and the FA Cup.
Discussions will take place in the next weeks between Real Madrid and Eden Hazard’s camp — his last appearance in La Liga was on September 11. 🇧🇪 #Real— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) March 6, 2023
Feeling internally is for Hazard to leave the club in the summer, in case of good bid/opportunity.

Other potential destinations for Hazard include Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan, both of whom are reportedly interested in the Belgian’s services.
Hazard’s departure from Real Madrid would mark the end of a disappointing spell at the club. The Belgian was signed for a reported fee of €100 million from Chelsea in 2019, but injuries and a lack of form have limited his impact.
Despite his struggles at Real Madrid, Hazard remains one of the most talented attacking players in the world. He was named the Premier League Player of the Season in 2015 and 2017 and helped Chelsea win numerous trophies during his time at the club.
The dilemma is, which club is going to run the risk of signing a player who is frequently injured and always fighting for fitness with enormous wages attached?
