When Eden Hazard secured his dream move to Real Madrid from Chelsea in the summer of 2019, it looked like a match made in heaven. The Belgian was at the top of his game at that time and seemed the perfect fit to lead the Merengues in a post-Cristiano Ronaldo era.

However, over three years into his stint at the Santiago Bernabeu and it would be safe to say that the Belgian international has been a huge dud. Fitness problems, unrelenting injury issues and poor form shot his confidence and rendered him a pale shadow of his former self.

Struggling for relevance, Hazard has been linked with an exit from Real Madrid for a while now, but has remained at the club despite his struggles to live up to the expectations.

Indeed, Mario Cortegana of MARCA reports that Real Madrid have made attempts to find an exit for Hazard in each of the last three transfer windows. The Spanish and European champions have looked at different formulae to get him off the books as his contract runs until 2024.

However, in spite of that, Hazard has always prioritised staying at the club even though he has found it hard to get going.

The primary reason for the Belgian international’s desire to stay put at the Santiago Bernabeu is that he wants to achieve success with Real Madrid. While he has won trophies and titles, Hazard has not made huge contributions to those triumphs, something he wishes to change.

The second reason why Hazard does not wish to leave the Merengues is that his family are settled down well in the city of Madrid.

Finally, another major reason for the former Chelsea superstar to not consider leaving is that he has not found any serious takers who appeal to him, be it from a sporting or an economic perspective.

Things could change for the Belgian international though after he made a big impression against Celtic earlier this week. After coming on to replace the injured Karim Benzema, Hazard had a hand in Real Madrid’s first two goals of the game before scoring the third himself.

With Benzema sidelined for the next few matches, Hazard will get regular opportunities to impress and it will be up to him to make the most of these chances.

    There is no need for RM to buy a striker even next season since Harzard and Rodrigo Goes can serve as backup for Benzema till 2024 where it can go for Halaand when Harzard contract expired but next season RM needs Jude Bellingham as Tony Kroos and Modric era coming to an end.

    Eventually Hazard will end-up be something Madrid wil reckon with since it had been a state of lookdown on the poor guy.
    Trully speaking even Benzema has his time of shame whereby he usually looked to be lost,and endup being helped by his teammates.
    Let all this happen with all players,Real Madrid is having depth of talent which sometimes they do not cherish,players need to be shown support.Those players who don’t perform to the standard may be given a chance to play with players of second dvision where they will up their performance and automatically developed those who are their minors a big deal.

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.
