Days after it was reported that he turned up for pre-season training overweight, Real Madrid have made an interesting post of Hazard working out with a large barbell at the club's Cuidad training quarters.
This seems to be a response to earlier reports as the club looks to re-assure their fans that their £100 million summer signing last season is in good shape ahead of the new La Liga season.
One year ago, Hazard was said to have arrived at Real Madrid overweight and series of injuries also made it difficult for him to have enough game time as he could only manage one goal all through last season.
Hazard is once again back in pre-season preparation and questions are being asked regarding his recent weight gain.
This is part of the reasons why Real Madrid posted a picture of him working out at the club's training quarters.
Zinedine Zidane will be hoping to get the best out of Hazard in the new La Liga season after an underwhelming first season for the Belgian.
Real Madrid won the La Liga title ahead of arch rivals Barcelona last season but they were unable to continue their Champions League heroics, losing in the last 16 stage to Manchester City over two legs.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Eden Hazard is on the same level as Barcelona legend Lionel Messi according to Samuel Eto'o.

Eto'o also added that he is excited the Argentine will be staying back at Barcelona despite the issues between the two parties.
The Cameroon legend is confident that Barcelona will reclaim the La Liga title at the end of the 2020-21 season.
However, he insisted that the club needs to attract more players who understand the philosophy of their playing style.
