Eden Hazard has been affected by Real Madrid’s offload as he joins Mariano Diaz, and Marco Asensio to exit the club after his contract has been terminated by the club.
The club has parted ways with the star who has underperformed in the club since he joined the Los Blancos in 2019.
The official statement from Real Madrid read:
“Real Madrid C. F. and Eden Hazard have reached an agreement by which the player is disassociated from the club as of June 30, 2023”.
“Eden Hazard has been part of our club for four seasons, in which he has won 8 titles: 1 European Cup, 1 Club World Cup, 1 European Super Cup, 2 Leagues, 1 Copa del Rey, and 2 Spanish Super Cups.”
“Real Madrid wants to express its affection for Eden Hazard and wishes him and his whole family the best of luck in this new stage.”
His four seasons at Madrid have been a spell as he hasn’t been consistent on the pitch due to injuries. The Belgian has made just six La Liga appearances this season without a goal and coming on as a substitute four times out of the six appearances.
Being the club’s most expensive signing at, he leaves with an appalling 76 appearances in all competitions and scoring just seven goals.
His performance in the Spanish league is ironic as he was one of the Premier League’s best players before he joined Real Madrid. He made 352 appearances for Chelsea and scored 110 goals. Being the Blues’ talisman, he led them to lift two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup as well as two Europa League titles.
The Belgian retired from international football in December, after his team was trailed by African underdogs Morocco and could not qualify from the Group stage of the 2022 World Cup.
