Eden Hazard’s struggles at Real Madrid have been well documented. Since joining from Chelsea, the Belgian has failed to live up to his price tag, often suffering from injuries or lacking the desired performances.
In 65 competitive outings, Hazard has scored only six goals while mustering a total of just ten assists. His underwhelming numbers have led to frustration from not only the fans but also the board members.
In a recent report from Fichajes, it has been revealed that Real Madrid are actively working on offloading Eden Hazard in the coming summer. The club have lost patience with the Belgian, and are willing to make certain sacrifices in an attempt to get rid of him after the end of the season.
Even in the ongoing campaign, Hazard has fallen behind the likes of Vinicius Junior, Marco Asensio and even Rodrygo in the pecking order, mustering just seven starts in the league so far.
Real Madrid are aware that Hazard might not attract potential buyers due to his underwhelming performances. His hefty wage demands do not help his cause either.
It has compelled Real Madrid to consider assuming a fair chunk of his wages in an attempt to offload the Belgian. Los Blancos had made a similar move when sending Gareth Bale out on loan Tottenham in 2020, paying half of the Welshman’s salary.
Whether or not they can find the same luck with Eden Hazard next summer remains to be seen.
Arsenal boss requests €25 million-rated Real Madrid attacker
Marco Asensio is among the players who are facing an uncertain future at Real Madrid as we approach the second half of the campaign.
The attacker’s current deal at Santiago Bernabeu expires at the end of the season. And despite showing glimpses of his potential during the course of this campaign, his continuity in the Spanish capital is far from guaranteed.
According to Fichajes, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has urged the club to push for an operation to sign Asensio at the end of the season.
The Spanish tactician has identified Asensio as an ideal candidate to reinforce his ranks in the attacking unit. The Real Madrid star, after all, brings in a wealth of experience, having featured in over 260 competitive matches for Los Blancos.
The forward’s tally of 53 goals and 29 assists is not bad by any means either. And given his versatility in the final third of the pitch, he could be a useful addition for Arsenal in the coming season.
But the Real Madrid camp will not too keen on offloading their star player. The club have been impressed by the attacker’s performance, which could potentially lead to a renewal offer later this year.
However, it must be noted that Real Madrid are yet to table any official offer for the attacker. In fact, it is Arsenal who have started laying the groundwork and are expected to meet the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, in London to discuss a potential move to Emirates Stadium.
It appears Liverpool are in the mix as well, though Arsenal remain the favourite due to the presence of Mikel Arteta. Barcelona, too, had showcased interest in signing Asensio in the summer, so it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Spaniard in the coming months.
