Chelsea given green light to re-sign Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard during this summer transfer window, according to Talksport. It has just been two years since Belgium international sealed his dream move to the Spanish capital from Stamford Bridge.
However, the transfer has failed to pan out as Hazard or Los Blancos would have hoped for. Indeed, Eden has looked a shadow of the forward that he was at the London club, often struggling for form and fitness, leading to the attacker being in and out of the side more often than not.
With Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti ushering in a new era at Real Madrid and having identified footballers like Richarlison, according to Goal, to strengthen the front-line, La Liga giants may have to axe some of their current attackers this transfer window.
And the 30-year-old forward, it looks, could be on the chopping blocks, with the attacker himself keen on putting an end to his terrible time in La Liga. And, as per reports, the Blues have been offered an opportunity to re-sign the Belgian forward this transfer window in a deal worth €60m.
Eden stays a popular figure at the London club, within the Blues and among the supporters. So, an opportunity to bring back the attacker is something that is certain to be of appeal.
Eden signed for the Blues in 2012 from French club Lille, snubbing interest from several other top teams around Europe and quickly established himself as a fan favourite at Chelsea.
Having helped the London club to the UEFA Europa League triumph in his very first year in England, Hazard continued to scale greater heights with each passing campaign.
In a short time, the Belgian winger established himself as one of the best footballers in England and Europe, dazzling supporters with his fantastic wing-play.
Trophies and tribulations followed as Hazard won the Premier League and the League Cup under Jose Mourinho, another Premier League trophy and the FA Cup when playing under Antonio Conte, before lifting the UEFA Europa League with Maurizio Sarri.
The 30-year-old forward amassed 352 appearances for the Blues in seven campaigns, scored 110 goals and provided 92 assists in the process, before departing for Los Blancos in the summer of 2019, in a deal worth an eye-watering €100m.
The London club are on the rise under the German manager. Chelsea lifted the UEFA Champions League last campaign, beating Eden Hazard’s Real Madrid along the way in the semi-finals.
