Eden Hazard confident about returning to his ‘Chelsea level’ – report

Eden Hazard’s move to Real Madrid from Chelsea has not worked out as intended at all.

Los Blancos shelled out a sum of over €100 million to secure the Belgian wing-wizard from the Premier League giants in 2019. At the top of his game in the season before his move, Hazard has struggled to hit that level in Spain.

Fitness problems and relentless injuries have hampered the former LOSC Lille starlet. As a result, Hazard has made just 65 appearances for Real Madrid despite being at the club for almost three years.

With just six goals during this period, it would be safe to say that the forward has been a major disappointment. The 31-year-old is out on the sidelines now as well, having not been involved since February 19.

Hazard underwent surgery in late March to have an osteosynthesis plate removed from his ankle that had been causing him pain and infections. Having undergone the procedure, the former Chelsea superstar is currently on his rehabilitation plan.

And SPORT reports that Hazard is in the final stretch of his recovery and could be ready to rejoin the team in training by the end of this month. However, he might have to wait until May 11 to return to action when Real Madrid face Levante in La Liga.

The report further adds that despite his ordeals, Hazard is confident that he can hit the heights of his Chelsea days for the Spanish capital club and bounce back strongly before the season ends.

Real Madrid have plenty of games remaining in the season with them being involved in the UEFA Champions League. So, if they progress in the tournament, Ancelotti would likely decide to rotate for the La Liga matches, considering that they are close to winning the title.

So, Hazard could get some regular game-time in the backend of the season and he can stand to get a proper run-out and make a solid impression. By doing so, the Belgian could save his career at the Santiago Bernabeu, given as he still has two years on his contract.

What is the price tag on Kylian Mbappe’s Real Madrid jersey?




Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
