Having been dropped for the second time this season, speculations are rife that the former Lille player Eden Hazard could be on his way to Real Madrid come January.
Madrid President Florentino Perez is widely known for his marquee signing every season and Eden Hazard could fit such bill. The reigning PFA player of the year was in an outstanding form last season as defenders couldn’t cope with his breath taking speed and dribbles.
Hazard was even compared to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi by Jose Mourinho last season. The player has endured a difficult start to the season and only has a goal to his credit this season. The player could as well move to Real Madrid as Perez would like to make a statement in the transfer window.
The Belgian star seems to be finding it difficult this season in adapting to Mourinho’s massive attack and massive defense tactics and a move to Madrid could offer him a chance to play only as a creative midfielder rather than defending.
Hazard reported fueled the speculation over a possible move to madrid, by’ liking’ a post on Instagram that reads: “According to Spanish media Eden Hazard is on Real Madrid’s radar for a 2016 transfer.”
Hazard signed a contract extension and would be at the club for the next five and half year. Hazard would not come cheap but it would be seen if Mourinho would allow his prized asset to move. Madrid is reportedly ready to offer record breaking offer to Chelsea for Hazard services.
Chelsea might likely end up doing business with Madrid if a tempting offer is put on the table. His poor form this season might make the club to decide to cash in on the player.
Hazard and Chelsea have promised to return back to form as the team languishes 10 points behind the league leaders Manchester City.
