Real Madrid believe 31-year-old winger is past his prime, are happy with his ‘efforts’

Real Madrid are said to be losing patience with Eden Hazard. For a player who arrived for an astronomical €100 million from Chelsea, a return of mere six goals in three seasons is a far cry from what he used to be a few years back.

The Belgium international did promise the fans that they would see the best of him this season, but judging by the looks of things, the version he has promised is already past his prime.

This is exactly what those sitting in the Real Madrid offices are currently pondering. As reported by Jose Felix Diaz, while writing for MARCA, while the Madrid management is valuing his efforts, they are barely expecting anything from the winger.

To put things into perspective, Hazard has never been a problem player. On the contrary, he has always vowed to bring the best version of himself in Madrid colours, but it has become obvious that he is no longer the same player who terrorized the Premier League defenders in his seven years with Chelsea.

It’s not only the management, but even the manager, Carlo Ancelotti, has accepted the fact. This is exactly why Hazard failed to get any minutes in the Super League triumph. Furthermore, he has only clocked a mere 39 minutes in his two substitute appearances in La Liga this season.

In all fairness, maybe it is time to face the harsh reality because Hazard is already way down the pecking order. He knows this for the fact that Vinicius Jr is simply irreplaceable and once Rodrygo gets on, there will be absolutely no place for him in the team.

The position the Belgian finds himself in is extremely tricky. He has already made it clear that he is not willing to listen to any offers, but in reality, there are no offers in the first place.

Hence, the association will go on as usual, at least for the ongoing season.

Real Madrid contact Bayern Munich for €70 million-rated left-back, Germans open to negotiate

Real Madrid are working on reinforcing their team on multiple fronts this summer transfer window, and have prepared a revolutionary sum for their endeavours. 

Reports claim that Madrid are ready to sell €300-400 million this summer as they know the team will be unable to compete without a ton more depth. 

Four of their forwards have already left the club this summer, a list that starts with Marco Asensio, but also includes Eden Hazard, Mariano Diaz, and most importantly, Karim Benzema. 

While it is clear that they will be spending a fortune to bring in multiple attackers, Madrid also need to spare money for other positions, such as the left-back spot. 

Ferland Mendy has been placed on the exit list, and even if he is to continue, Madrid have already chosen Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies as their next star fullback. 

According to Spanish outlet MARCA, Real Madrid have already contacted Bayern Munich over a transfer for Davies this summer. Their approaches have not been rejected by the Bavarian giants.

The report also stated that Madrid have travelled to Munich twice already to speak to Davies’ entourage as they prepare the move. The Canadian has a contract until 2025, and reportedly does not want to extend his deal.

Davies’ attacking prowess could work brilliantly for Vinicius Jr, too, who has been carrying the burden of the left-wing alone for the last two years.

Further, Madrid are very worried about the left-back role, especially given the sheer number of injuries this season. Mendy, David Alaba, Nacho, Antonio Rudiger, and even Eduardo Camavinga have put in shifts in that position.

Davies will not come cheap, though, with the price tag expected to exceed €60-70 million. However, at 22, the Canadian would be a very long-term solution for a problem that’s been worrying Madrid for a few years.
