It is a dream of even the world’s best footballers to play for Real Madrid. Needless to say, it is a special chance when a player is offered to don the prestigious white jersey of inarguably the greatest club of all time. All don’t seize the chance equally well, though.

Eden Hazard serves as the perfect example a ruined golden opportunity. The Belgian signed for Los Blancos in 2019, his dream club, but and his career has gone downhill ever since.

According to reports from Fotomac, there is interest from Galatasaray to sign Eden Hazard. The Turkish side are preparing an offer for the Belgian and are optimistic about reaching an agreement with Real Madrid to sign him this summer.

Given that the player is still 31 years old, it is difficult to believe that his stocks have fallen to such a low. For a player who was once dubbed to be amongst the best in Europe to move to the Turkish League at such a young age is unfathomable.

Last season, the Belgian won La Liga and the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid but only made 18 league appearances. In that duration, he failed to find the back of the net and provided just one assist.

He returned to training this season with more conviction and is said to have impressed Carlo Ancelotti with his desire to succeed. The manager recently confirmed to the press that he will count on the Belgian,

“Hazard? He did a great job in tight spaces, he’s training well and he’s taking his time.”

The value of Galatasaray’s offer has not been revealed and Real Madrid could be tempted to sell the player if the proposed fee is satisfactory. If Hazard stays, he is expected to play as a backup for Karim Benzema.

According to transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano (h/t Madrid Xtra), Real Madrid are shifting its focus towards securing new contracts for key players Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy in the upcoming weeks.

Both Carvajal and Mendy have contracts that are set to expire in 2025. While there have been some challenges regarding Mendy’s future, Real Madrid have remained clear about their intentions for the Euro 2024 winner.

Over the past year, Carvajal has had an impressive run, adding three more trophies to his collection with Real Madrid, including the Euro 2024 championship. 

Interestingly, he is currently not overly concerned about his future. He hasn’t been thinking much about his contract extension, with the last major news about it surfacing about a month ago.

“At the moment I’m not thinking about leaving Madrid, far from it. My subjective perception is that the day I can’t contribute what I can contribute, I’ll take a step aside,” he said a few weeks back.

On the other hand, Mendy’s future at Real Madrid seemed uncertain due to rumours that he might be replaced by Alphonso Davies. 

However, Carlo Ancelotti has shown an unusually strong preference for retaining Mendy. The manager has made it clear that he wants Mendy to stay. 

He has praised Mendy’s skills and performances throughout the past season, making it evident that he sees Mendy as a crucial part of his strategy.

At present, there is a significant concern within the team that if an agreement is not reached by next summer, Mendy could leave the club on a free transfer. This scenario is something Real Madrid are keen to avoid.

As Real Madrid move forward with these contract negotiations, the focus remains on securing the futures of both Carvajal and Mendy, ensuring that they continue to contribute to the club’s success in the years to come.
