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.

Jose Felix Diaz has reported via MARCA that Real Madrid want a major change in the Spanish refereeing system.

The reporter writes that the team from the Spanish capital has taken the issue as their top priority mostly because of what happened in the recent derby defeat against Atletico Madrid

Los Blancos are determined to relentlessly steer a significant overhaul of the refereeing structure, and they have no intention of resting in their pursuit. 

Their discontent comes not only from recent events, particularly the contentious derby match but also from a deep-seated frustration with the state of refereeing itself.

Real Madrid not hiding their discontent

The journalist mentions that Real Madrid are unapologetic about their continuous criticism of the refereeing community, firmly believing that a transformation is of utmost importance.

Even prior to the emergence of the Negreira case, the Merengues had been vocal about their dissatisfaction with those responsible for overseeing the refereeing unit. 

For what it is worth, the revelation of the former vice president of the CTA’s financial ties to Barcelona only solidified Real Madrid’s resolve to advocate for a complete overhaul in referee management.

Real Madrid are suspicious

Real Madrid firmly assert that any influence from Negreira’s historical decisions in certain key positions raises suspicions about the fairness of the competition. 

For that, the management will do everything in its power to achieve a certain level of transparency within the organization that it believes is currently overshadowed by historical baggage.

As of today, Real Madrid continue to voice their concerns through their official channels.

Right now their ultimate goal is to eliminate the involvement of Clos Gomez in VAR decisions, marking the beginning of a long-standing battle they are fighting.
