Real Madrid’s Champions League glory at the end of last season was yet another pivotal moment for the club as they continue to write history in the coveted competition.

In light of their triumph, a host of Real Madrid players are expected to feature in UEFA’s Team of the Season. According to a leaked lineup, there could be up to five Los Blancos stars featuring in the list of eleven players, involving the likes of Thibaut Courtois and Karim Benzema.

Needless to say, both the Real Madrid stars have proven themselves to be the best in the business in their respective positions.

Courtois, for one, is widely regarded as the best goalkeeper in the world right now, thanks to his consistent performances at Santiago Bernabeu over the past couple of years. Benzema, meanwhile, was the driving force behind Real Madrid’s success in La Liga and UCL last season.

Other Real Madrid players expected to feature in the Team of the Season are Luka Modric and Vinicius Junior, with the latter now being considered the second most important attacker in the Whites camp, second only to Benzema.

Modric, on the other hand, had played a key role in adding a greater dimension to Real Madrid’s midfield setup. Even at the age of 36, the midfielder is going strong and it will not be surprising to see him feature on the list.

UEFA Team of the Season could include one more Real Madrid star, in the form of Antonio Rudiger.

The German international may have joined Los Blancos earlier in the summer, but he played a key role in Chelsea’s rapid rise to prominence, even though his team did lose to Real Madrid in the quarter-final of the competition last season.

Eden Hazard is one of the Real Madrid players who have vowed to stay at Santiago Bernabeu until the end of his contract. His current deal at the club expires in 2024.

Even though the Real Madrid star has been courted by several MLS and even the Saudi Arabian clubs, the forward has shown no desire to leave Bernabeu just yet. He wants to stay at the club even though Los Blancos are ready to sanction his sale this summer.

In the midst of this drama, a fresh report from Alfredo Matilla suggests Real Madrid are now considering terminating the contract of Eden Hazard.

This comes shortly after a report which claimed that a Real Madrid player who is not out of contract this summer, may shockingly leave the club this summer. Ferland Mendy was a potential candidate, but it appears Hazard has not been ruled out either.

The Belgian international has offered very little since joining from Chelsea in 2019 for a record-breaking €115 million fee. His spell at the Bernabeu has been marred by injuries, while the player has also struggled to impress when given the opportunities.

Inside the Real Madrid dressing room, there is both grief and resentment towards Belgian, who has remained steadfast in his decision to stay at the club. He has a good standing in the team due to his professionalism, but the Real Madrid bosses are determined to get rid of him this summer.

Hazard, after all, is the highest-paid player in the squad and his departure could open up a chunk of the space in the salary mass. But it must be noted that Real Madrid would have to spend a fortune to terminate Hazard’s contract.

Hence, it will be interesting to see whether or not Los Blancos end up splashing the cash in order to get Hazard out of their books this coming summer.
