Real Madrid star wants to remain at Bernabeu despite Saudi Arabian approach

Real Madrid have their task cut out this summer as they look to not only sign new players but also get rid of unwanted stars.

One of them is Eden Hazard. The former Chelsea superstar still has a contract until 2024, but his performances at Santiago Bernabeu have been far from perfect. He has lost his prominence in the team and the club must sanction his sale in the coming summer.

According to Foot Mercato, Hazard has been approached by Al Hilal recently. The Saudi Arabian giants want to sign the ageing star as part of their plans to reinforce the team with some of the star players across Europe.

Hazard could be a perfect option for Al Hilal as the Belgian could be available on a cut-price deal this summer. His pedigree in European football could also be handy as Al Hilal look to compete with rivals Al Nassr in the Saudi Professional Football League.

However, it appears Hazard is not interested in moving to the Middle East just yet. He remains committed to fulfilling his contract at Real Madrid, which does not expire until the end of next season.

Hazard was approached similarly by MLS outfits, but they received a similar response. The player is simply not interested in leaving Bernabeu in the coming summer and wants to remain a part of the first-team, despite no apparent chance of making a breakthrough.

The former LOSC Lille starlet has been ostracized from the first-team by Carlo Ancelotti this season. It is only going to get worse next term, with Real Madrid expected to bring in a few new faces in the attacking department.

The Spanish giants, therefore, must convince the Belgian to take up the offers from the Saudi Arabian or MLS clubs, if he truly wants to revive his career.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
