Neither sale, nor transfer in which you have to pay half of the token… Eden Hazard (31) accepts the challenge of succeeding at Real Madrid in his fourth season, perhaps aware that there is a possibility that he will be the one to fill the void left by the failed signing of Mbappé. It was confirmed by the Belgian player himself in statements by Kristof Terreur, from the prestigious Belgian newspaper Mean GPDone of the head journalists of the Madrid star.
“Everyone knows that I have a contract until 2024. My first three seasons haven’t gone well, so I want to show everyone what I can give. It has always been a dream to play for Real Madrid, and it still is”, said the Belgian attacker, who has just started playing, at a very good level, after the plate on his ankle was removed after his last operation .
“If I feel liberated after the operation?” Hazard reflected on HLN. “The surgery went well. Everything is going well at the moment. I’m ready just in time to play a role in the Champions League final“, he sentenced, ambitious, after having played 26 minutes in the penultimate day of the championship, against Cádiz, leaving very good feelings, although he did not play the last one against Betis. “I did not want to go too fast like the last time. The coach understood my situation, as did the medical staff. We have worked well. Now I feel very good”.
Eden Hazard arrived at Real Madrid in the summer of 2019. A star operation for which the white entity paid €100 million plus variables (which have hardly been fulfilled). A price well below the market as he only had one year left on his contract at Chelsea. So, the Belgian was one of the world’s top-5 footballers. But the bad luck of injuries, especially a tackle by Meunier for which he had to undergo another operation on his ankle, put an end to his aspirations of succeeding in white. He has a contract until 2024 and he is determined to stay. Ancelotti already knows that he is counting on him for the next season… And, of course, for the final in Paris: “If I am going to shoot the fifth penalty? We will see. Let’s see if it reaches the penalty shootout first, ”he joked.
