It is an open secret that Real Madrid want to get rid of Eden Hazard. The Belgian has proven to be a waste of expenditure for the Whites, having performed poorly throughout his time at Santiago Bernabeu, all the while pocketing a lucrative pay package.

But ahead of a busy summer ahead, Real Madrid are ready to get rid of Hazard at the end of the season. And there are no shortage of suitors either, with Al Nassr among the clubs interested in his services.

A report from Mundo Deportivo even claims that Hazard went to meet Al Nassr manager Rudi Garcia in his office recently, as seen by El Chiringuito.

Hazard has a close relationship with Garcia, who had worked with the Belgian during their together at LOSC Lille. Garcia even played a significant role in helping the young forward kickstart his professional career.

It appears they could be in contention to reunite at Al Nassr, who are determined to attract more star players after capturing Cristiano Ronaldo on a bumper deal. The Saudi Arabian giants intend to become the biggest club in Asia and as part of their plans, they are targeting other top players across Europe.

Sergio Ramos is reportedly in talks with Al Nassr over a summer move and it appears Hazard, too, has joined the list of targets. The Belgian’s meeting with Garcia comes in the midst of the Spanish Supercup, which is being hosted by Saudi Arabia.

Real Madrid are involved in the competition and even beat Valencia to book a ticket to the final against FC Barcelona. Their former superstar Cristiano Ronaldo even visited the club’s training to visit some of his old teammates.

Real Madrid not worried about Bellingham’s knee injury, Dortmund asking for €150 million

Heading into the 2023 summer transfer window, Real Madrid had one main priority on their minds – signing Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund amidst interest from several other parties involved.

With Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool also chasing his signature, Madrid knew it was going to take a lot more than just a €120 million offer and a blank cheque to convince Bellingham.

Eventually, it seems the player’s desire to join Madrid came through. He rejected advances from the Premier League, and eventually chose the defending Champions League winners as his next home.

There are certainly doubts with the transfer, though, as there would be, with any €120 million signing. With this transfer, it is Bellingham’s knee troubles. The Englishman might have to undergo surgery to treat his knee, and is also expected to miss England’s EURO 2024 qualifiers.

A knee surgery at the age of 19 would, and probably should be a scary prospect for any player and club. Real Madrid, though, are not worried, as per a report by SPORT1.

They want him to form a ‘royal midfield’ quadrant with Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga, and Federico Valverde.

The transfer is expected to close next week, as Borussia Dortmund advanced negotiations with Real Madrid after losing the Bundesliga title on the final matchday.

The two club presidents, Hans-Joachim Watzke and Florentino Perez, have a ton of mutual respect for one another, and want the transfer to be closed promptly so both clubs can move forward with the rest of the transfer window.

For Dortmund, that means finding a replacement for Bellingham, and reinforcing their squad to challenge for the Bundesliga title next season. For Madrid, meanwhile, it would mean finding Karim Benzema’s replacement.

The final details of the transfer fee are still remaining, though, with Dortmund hoping to get nearly €150 million out of the deal.
