Real Madrid did not make a bad decision when it comes to signing Eden Hazard from Chelsea and shattering their transfer record to do that. The Belgian had established himself as a Premier League legend during his seven years at Stamford Bridge and was one of the best players in the world at that point of time.

So, Hazard ticked all the boxes and when the move was made, most fans were ecstatic.
The situation of Eden Hazard at Real Madrid is a strange one. We all know what he was once capable of but we have never been able to see it in the Royal White jersey. Injuries have played their part in making his Spanish journey difficult and even though he seems to be fully fit and recovered now, it might just be a bit too late.

The report claims that the position on the left of the attack is now closed due to Vinicius Junior’s form, while Rodrygo and Federico Valverde are ahead of him for the spot on the right.
