After Real Madrid crashed out of the Champions League in the Round of 16 with an embarrasing loss at the Bernabeau, many people have debated over social media as to why Eden Hazard would want to go to Real Madrid in this current state. I, @acparee, take a further look into the details…
It is no doubt that Eden Hazard enjoys playing under Maurizio Sarri, they think and want to play the same type of football, however with the possibility of Jose Mourinho becoming Real Madrid manager it certainly could be that Hazard would want to play in Madrid more than ever:
If I’m now asked one coach with whom I want to work again, then I say: ‘Mourinho’,” Hazard told HLN.
The Transfer Ban:
Although this isn’t related to Real Madrid’s season, Chelsea’s possible transfer ban in the Summer could make Hazard stay or leave for many reasons. I’m not going to explain all of it here due to ChelseaEcho doing a livestream on the Youtube channel on this exact topic tomorrow evening, so stay tuned!
With how it is looking at the moment, a couple Real Madrid ‘stars’ could certainly leave Real Madrid if the season was to continue, including the likes of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric. This would provide the Champions League holders with a mass amount of money to spend on the transfer market, as well as freeing up space for other players. However, if Real Madrid was to make a u-turn and end up having a good end to the season, Real Madrid may not want to go in for Hazard who only has one year left on his contract and Chelsea are valuing him at the minimum of £100 million. It was also reported that the Real Madrid president and board are wanting to improve their youth products in the likes of Asensio, as well as improving the potential world class forward Vinicius Jr.
Real Madrid’s season could certainly be similar to Chelsea’s 15/16 season with the market. After one of Chelsea’s worst seasons in the Roman Abramovic era, Chelsea spent efficiently and well are straight away were back on track. Madrid may feel the need to spend money to rebuild, and that could lead to the possibility of interest in Hazard, just like we did with Ngolo Kante. But, if Real’s season was to improve they may not want to spend so much money on the 28 year old and more concentrate on the long term future.
To conclude, it is unclear at the moment and will be for the rest of the season whether Eden Hazard will go to Real Madrid, so we will have to wait and see how the season goes, for both Chelsea and Real Madrid.
