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. On the other hand, following Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus the summer earlier, Real Madrid did not have a real superstar in their team. So, Hazard ticked all the boxes and when the move was made, most fans were ecstatic.

What has followed over the next three years though has been a nightmare for Hazard. The Belgian has had to deal with one injury after another, and has never managed to find his place at Real Madrid. At the moment, he might very well be the last choice winger at the club. Of course, injuries can happen to anyone and he cannot really be blamed. And alarms were ringing once again when he was forced off the pitch while representing the Belgian national team against the Netherlands. Fortunately, there is some good news this time around.

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.

Carlo Ancelotti aiming to play him as a false nine looks less like an innovative idea and more like the only way the Belgian gets some playing time. When you’re on as big a contract as Hazard, you should be playing regularly. Technically, you should be starting every week but that is not expected to happen anytime soon and therefore the next best thing is cameo appearances off the bench. Continue reading


Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly planning to use Eden Hazard as a false number nine next season. The 31-year-old again found it difficult to show his best form for Los Blancos during the 2021-22 campaign, managing only one goal and two assists in 23 appearances in all competitions. In total, the Belgium international has scored six times and registered 10 assists in 66 appearances for Real Madrid, largely struggling at Bernabeu since his big-money move from Chelsea in July 2019.

Hazard still has more than two years left to run on his contract, though, and he will be staying with the La Liga and European champions this summer despite the speculation surrounding his future. According to AS, Ancelotti is planning to deploy the Belgian as a false number nine next season in the matches where Karim Benzema needs a rest. 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.

Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard has found it hard to ride on his luck in recent years and has suffered a lot from different injury problems that have hampered his career. Since moving from Chelsea to Real Madrid some months ago, the Belgium international forward has not lived up to expectations and continues to owe the Spanish La Liga giants and their fans consistency on the pitch. His time at the club, which is now considered by many to be a disaster, has continued to hit rock-bottom and even though he has been trying hard to get it back on track, the injuries keep coming back.

However, there seems to be a bit of good news as things are, with reports claiming that the Real Madrid man could be returning to fitness gradually. The attacker is currently away on international duty with his country Belgium and is hoping that he can help them win the Euros 2020 trophy but that is not the only detail. Reports have claimed that Hazard is now averaging more minutes on the pitch than he has done for Real Madrid in recent times and they are good signs that he could be returning to his club as a different player than when he left.
