When Real Madrid agreed with Chelsea on a deal to sign Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard, it looked like the Spanish club were pulling off their next big signing after the Cristiano Ronaldo era. It looked like the former Chelsea player was finally going to leave England and be the next big thing to happen to the Spanish La Liga.
Before completing the transfer, Hazard had also already made it clear that he was interested in joining Real Madrid as he considered it the next big step of his career. The deal was finally completed with all parties involved finally getting what they wanted, except, of course, Chelsea, who felt they could have convinced the player to stay back for at least one more year.
Despite the pressure to return to winning ways Zinedine Zidane says his star player would not be rushed back until full recovery. Los Blancos know it is a competitive season if they want to get their hands on any title. The fans are also keen to see the Belgian repay the faith and investment in him but the coach will not rush Hazard back.
The forward will likely return to full fitness and play in the La Liga after the international break, and Zidane is content with that. Belgium national team coach Roberto Martinez is watching on, hoping Madrid put the player’s best interest at heart. However Martinez says if Hazard plays at Villarreal this weekend, the winger will feature for them.
Real Madrid are expected to go on a summer transfer spree with several top players linked to the Spanish club. according to reports, the Los Blancos are looking to raid the EPL of two of its best players in Eden Hazard and Paul Pogba.
Madrid based paper AS reports that the club are looking to the duo as the club are unlikely to sign French prodigy Kylian Mbappe in the summer. PSG have told the Spanish club that they are not going to sell their prized asset in the summer.
Eden Hazard concedes he might at present want to join Real Madrid however could yet be convinced to remain at Chelsea. Belgium worldwide has been connected with a step to the Bernabe Santiago for quite a while and has recently communicated enthusiasm for a change to LA Liga.
Risk says the take-off of youth icon Zinedine Zidane as head mentor toward the finish of last season wouldn’t really impact his arrangements, but rather has recommended he could, in any case, submit his future to Bridge Stamford.
