Eden Hazard has had a terrible time at Real Madrid. Since arriving at the club in 2019 in a deal worth around €120 million, the Belgian winger has managed only 76 appearances and has not crossed the single-digit mark when it comes to his goals and assists tally.

Constant injuries, fitness issues, and poor form have characterized his time at the Santiago Bernabeu. And given that he is the highest-earning member of the team, Los Blancos are keen on offloading him at the end of the current season.

And, as per a report from MARCA, Hazard is generating interest from the MLS where CF Montreal are looking to sign him up this summer.

The MLS outfit’s owner, Joey Saputo, is looking to add more star power to his squad and has identified Hazard as a possible reinforcement for the upcoming transfer window.

However, Hazard has not responded positively to the interest shown by CF Montreal as he wishes to stay at Real Madrid and see out his contract, which expires in 2024.

In an interview in November last year, the 32-year-old had claimed that he would leave the club if he was told to do so. But, now, he has changed that stance and has his sights set on fulfilling the remainder of his contract at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid, for their part, are hopeful that they can convince Hazard to leave so that they can free up the €30 million salary space he occupies and bring in a new forward like Moussa Diaby.

But, as things stand, the former Belgium captain has shown little interest in leaving even though he has suitors in the MLS as well as Saudi Arabia. Whether the situation changes in the coming weeks remains to be seen.

Real Madrid missed out on the signing of Leny Yoro after deciding not to match Manchester United’s offer for the 18-year-old defender.

With the French prodigy now on his way to the Premier League, Los Blancos are assessing their options before deciding whether to sign a new centre-back or not.

As things stand, the reigning champions of Spain and Europe seem to be leaning towards relying on their existing options rather than going into the market.

Jesus Vallejo unlikely to leave

As such, MARCA reports that the likelihood of Jesus Vallejo leaving the club have now significantly reduced.

Indeed, the 27-year-old out-of-favour defender now appears more and more likely to continue at Real Madrid beyond this summer.

Vallejo returned to the Santiago Bernabeu after finishing his loan stint at Granada during which he hardly played due to injury and fitness woes.

As such, reports suggested that Carlo Ancelotti & co. were not planning on counting on him next season, even though he was handed a new shirt number recently.

But with the Leny Yoro operation collapsing and Real Madrid not keen on recruiting anyone from the market at this point, the Spanish ace is now unlikely to leave the club.

With David Alaba still sidelined, Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao will start the new season as the first-choice centre-back pairing and Vallejo will serve as the backup while Aurelien Tchouameni will also be an option.

Vallejo, for his part, wanted to stay put and see out his contract which expires in 2025. And, as things stand, it appears that the player will get his wish.
