Video: Eden Hazard’s son scores a worldie for Real Madrid’s youth team
Real Madrid have always had a tradition of nurturing the sons of their star players. In the past, Cristiano Ronaldo’s son Cristiano Jr. has played for its prestigious youth team and the situation is no different with Eden Hazard’s son, Leo.
In a recent Iscar Cup match, Leo has shown a glimpse of his potential by scoring an absolute banger. The 10-year-old scored Real Madrid youth’s second goal from outside the box, bamboozling the opposition goalkeeper in the process.

The Iscar Cup is a prestigious youth tournament that has been going on in Spain since 2011. The competition has gained prominence due to the pedigree of teams competing in the tournament, including Real Madrid youth.
While Eden Hazard has struggled to perform at Real Madrid, it appears his son is doing quite a good job for himself and may potentially have a glittering professional career ahead of him.
However, with the Belgian international facing an uncertain future at Santiago Bernabeu, it is unlikely that Leo will continue with Real Madrid’s youth squad in the coming years.

Real Madrid youngster impresses Ancelotti, Kroos, and Messi in training – report
Real Madrid have a host of talent coming through their youth setup, with the likes of Sergio Arribas, Vinicius Tobias, and Nico Paz impressing the club through their performances with Real Madrid Castilla.
Paz, especially, has been touted as one of the biggest talents coming through the Madrid academy. He is considered ‘the’ talent from the youth setup, with a lot of expectations around him.
A midfielder by trade, Paz has seemingly impressed two of the biggest names in world football, according to MARCA.
One of them is Toni Kroos, who has watched Paz closely during training with the senior team. The German complimented him, as well, saying, “This boy should train with us every day because he is terrific.”
He has also seemingly created an impression on none other than Lionel Messi, while the two were training with Argentina together.
Carlo Ancelotti has also joined the praise parade for Paz, “He has projections to play in the first team. He is doing very well with Arbeloa and the times he was used by Raúl he has also done very well at Castilla.”
Paz has already been included in the squad list for two games so far this season, and will continue to train with Real Madrid’s senior squad. He is also expected to be a part of los blancos’ pre-season tour, after which he could get minutes next season.
Real Madrid have renewed the Argentine’s contract up until 2027, as they wanted to lock him down quickly for the long-term. There, is however, a chance he could leave Madrid on lock next season to get minutes with a senior division side.
