Eden Hazard joined Real Madrid as a legend in 2019 after spending the best years of his career at Chelsea and left in June this year, crawling across the field and without having played a minute this season. Now, at 32, due to a lack of motivation and good offers, he would consider giving up his career.
Hazard was a world star. At the London club, he was named the best player in the Premier League in 2015 and won two league titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup and two Europa League titles, scoring 110 goals and 72 assists in seven seasons and 322 appearances. . . He also won the bronze medal with the Belgian team at the 2018 World Championships in Russia.
Real Madrid invested 115 million euros to get his transfer. However, he didn’t even come close to reaching the level he showed in London in Chamartín. Hazard was a shadow in Madrid of the player who shone at Stamford Bridge. The constant injuries and little adaptation to Spanish life meant that he always stayed in the background. In four seasons he only played 76 games and scored seven goals. Despite this, he won the 2022 Champions League with the Whites, as well as two leagues, two Spanish Super Cups, a Club World Cup, a Copa del Rey and a European Super Cup.
There is also a Ligue 1 and French Cup win with Lille in 2011, as well as various individual awards such as player of the season in both France and England. In the Belgium national team he scored 33 goals in 126 games.
You have received offers but are not convinced
Since his split with Real Madrid on July 1, the Belgian has received several offers, both from European clubs such as Lille, Nice or Olympique de Marseille, the Vancouver whitecaps of the MLS, and from various Saudi teams, according to The Sun. . However, Hazard would prefer to retire from football before embarking on a new adventure that would bring big bucks but little joy to his bank account as he would not be performing as well as before. With such a weakened physique, it is better to retreat in time than to risk further possible injuries.
