The 30-year-old left the west London in the summer transfer market of 2019. He spent seven seasons at Stamford Bridge and departed in a blockbuster deal worth £150 million.
His move to the Spanish capital has been nothing short of a nightmare. He has managed five goals and eight assists from just 43 games for Los Blancos.
Now, it’d seem as though manager Carlo Ancelotti wants the star gone. He’ll look to put his own mark on the team and Hazard is not part of that.
The report states that Madrid will look for a sum in the region of £51 million for Eden. As a result, it does seem extremely unlikely that Thomas Tuchel will want to bring the star back.
Chelsea are not particularly shy in the wide zones but they are desperate for a centre-forward. If the club stumped up such a fee of money, they would likely target a proven striker as opposed to Eden.
Then there is the 111-cap player’s salary to consider. Eden earns a staggering £400,000 per week at the Santiago Bernabeu and as a result, it looks unthinkable that Thomas Tuchel’s side will return to sign him.
During an interview with Spanish publication Marca, Jose Mourinho famously called Eden an ‘incredible player, but an awful trainer.’
It goes without saying that Hazard was fantastic for Chelsea. He netted 110 goals and claimed 92 assists from 352 outings during his time in London.
He left as something of a fan favourite and some would probably welcome the opportunity to see Eden back in the famous blue jersey.
The Blues have to start looking forwards though. After last term’s success in the Champions League, it is time to plan for the future and that does not include Hazard.
Considering his age, he would not be an investment for the future and Chelsea should opt against an expensive short-term arrangement for their former player.
In other news, Chelsea have allegedly made an enquiry for the Serie A side Sassuolo attacker Domenico Berardi.
