[LIVE NOW] ‘Rayo Vallecano 1-0 Real Madrid’ Full HD Online Live Stream

The Belgian joined Real Madrid in 2019 for £89m having just helped Chelsea to their second Europa League crown.

It was expected that Hazard would become a fixture in the Real Madrid side after a number of great seasons with Chelsea, with whom he won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, two League Cups and two Europa Leagues.

However, his time in the Spanish capital has been blighted by injuries, question marks over his professionalism related to his fitness and various incidents that have not endeared him to the Los Blancos faithful.

According to El Nacional, a Catalan-focused online newspaper, Real Madrid no longer have faith that Hazard is going to become the player they spent such a significant sum on.

Indeed, the report claims that Hazard has already told Thibaut Courtois, his compatriot and friend from their days at Chelsea together, that he will be departing this winter.

It is believed that Aston Villa and Newcastle at present represent Hazard’s most likely escape routes. Villa have ambitions of establishing themselves as a force under new manager Unai Emery while Newcastle have the financial might few clubs can match.

It has been suggested that any deal would include an obligation to buy clause – he is likely to cost around £17m.
