Real Madrid tell for out-of-favour winger to find a new club after the World Cup

Back in 2019, when Eden Hazard joined Real Madrid from Chelsea, the Belgian wing-wizard was at the top of the game and had termed the move as his ‘dream’ transfer. However, three years into the stint, it would be safe that it has been more of a nightmare than a dream.

Since his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, Hazard has endured never-ending fitness woes which have ensured that he has never been able to showcase what made him one of the best wingers in the game during his time at Chelsea.

The 31-year-old is firmly out of favour under manager Carlo Ancelotti and now Tomas Gonzalez-Martin is reporting that Real Madrid have informed Hazard to find a new club after the FIFA World Cup as they wish to get rid of him.

Hazard has hardly featured this season for Los Blancos, with the trio of Mariano Diaz, Jesus Vallejo and Alvaro Odriozola being the only stars to have played fewer minutes than the Belgian international.

After winning the UEFA Champions League last season, Hazard insisted that this was going to be his best year at Real Madrid. But that has hardly been the case as he has spent time warming the benches or out on the treatment tables.

The Merengues had asked him to find a club to leave on loan in the summer, but the ex-Chelsea superstar had refused to do so. However, having grown tired of waiting for him to deliver Real Madrid want to part ways with him at the earliest possible.

With a gross yearly salary of €27 million, he is the highest-earning member of the squad and the club do not want to keep paying such a huge sum for him to keep warming the bench.

To that end, Hazard has been told to find a club soon after the World Cup so that he can either leave on loan or a permanent transfer, although the latter option will be difficult due to his massive wages.

With the international break underway, several Real Madrid players have been called up for national team assignments. The stars who have not travelled for international duty have continued to work at the club’s Valdebebas training facility to prepare for the restart.

Toni Kroos is one such player who has remained in Madrid, having retired from international football back in 2021.

However, there had been concerns growing around the 33-year-old’s physical condition as he regularly did indoor work last week and was not spotted in group training with his teammates.

Now, Sergio Quirante has come up with an update on Kroos’ situation, stating that even though the midfielder largely did individual work inside the facilities over the last week, he is fine and has no injuries.

Taking advantage of the international break, the former Bayern Munich superstar is understood to have gone through an individual program to prepare for the final, decisive stretch of the 2022/23 season.

Kroos not being injured comes as a big positive for Real Madrid, ahead of important games against Real Valladolid and Barcelona within the first five days of April.

The rest of the Real Madrid midfield contingent – Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni, Federico Valverde, and Dani Ceballos – are all away on international duties and could return with some fatigue from the travel.

So, it is important that Kroos is fully fit and ready to go as Real Madrid look to cut down the gap to the top of the table in La Liga and also make it to the finals of the Copa del Rey by overturning a first-leg deficit against Barcelona in the semi-finals.

Kroos has played 37 matches this season, chipping in with two goals and five assists in the process. With his contract expiring at the end of the season, it is still unclear whether he will renew or hang up his boots.
