Hazard stays at Real Madrid for another year

Eden Hazard was once among the biggest stars in the world of football. Currently, however, he is no more than a supplementary player. Still, the Belgian will stay at Real Madrid.

When Hazard moved from Chelsea to Madrid in 2019 for a record €115m, he was seen as the successor to Cristiano Ronaldo who had left the club. But the left winger was never able to build on his form and his performances from London times.

On the one hand, it seems as if the pressure of the high fee weighs on his shoulders, on the other hand, injuries kept throwing him back. Since joining Real, Hazard has been absent more often due to illness or injury (69) than he has been on the field (65). The striker has only managed six goals and ten assists in his three years with the Royals.

Ancelotti: “He’s staying to show his quality next season.”
