Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard would reportedly love to seal a romantic return to Chelsea, but there is one main stumbling block that could prevent any move.
Well-respected journalist Miguel Delaney has written in his weekly newsletter in The Independent that Spanish giants Madrid are trying to get rid of Hazard.
It is understood that they are even trying to push for him to re-join Chelsea, something the player would jump at the chance of doing.
However, the report explains there is no interest from the Blues in re-signing the 31-year-old. Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia hasn’t initiated any kind of move for the Belgian.
Hazard, who was described as a “world-class player” as recently as 2019 by Sergio Ramos, has endured a tough time since leaving Stamford Bridge for a dream move to Madrid.
The left-winger has only made 65 appearances across all competitions for the La Liga side after two-and-a-half years at the Bernabeu.
It’s a shame to see him look a shadow of the dazzling forward that used to light up the Premier League and the Bridge.
His Chelsea legacy is 110 goals and 92 assists in 352 matches, along with a load of top level silverware and individual accolades.
Chelsea never replaced Hazard
Of course, it was a huge ask to want someone to provide Chelsea with as many great moments as Hazard.
The club will have definitely wanted more on their investment after really going all out to try sign top-class attackers in the last few years.
Christian Pulisic has shown shades of being the Blues winger that possess an X factor, but injuries and form mean he’s a millions miles off right now.
It may impossible for certain fans not to want former favourite Hazard back at the club. He wouldn’t be returning as the same player, though.
