Eden Hazard’s spell at Real Madrid has been marred by injuries as well as fitness issues but Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane claimed the player is close to a return.

The former Chelsea star joined the Spanish giants for a staggering €100million (£91m/$117m) last summer, but his first year has been halted by nagging injury problems.

Hazard has made just 22 appearances for Los Blancos since he joined, scoring just one goal and he is yet to feature this season.

The 29-year-old was not named in the squad that played the 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad on the La Liga opening day and it was the same during their 3-2 win over Real Betis.

“I think he’s very close to a return," Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said as quoted by GOAL.

“He is prepared and training well with the team. The issue is that he hasn’t been able to train much until now, but now he is back training regularly. So, we’ll see what happens."

Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid ended in a 1-0 win for Zinedine Zidane's side at the Estadio Di Stefano Stadium.

The only goal of the match was scored by Vinicius Junior as Los Blancos recorded their second victory of the season.

Eden Hazard was ruled of the clash due to injury but the likes of Marcelo, Isco and Odriozola made their appearance of the season.

The only goal of the match was scored by Vinicius Junior as Los Blancos recorded their second victory of the season.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that days after it was reported that he turned up for pre-season training overweight, Real Madrid 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.

Zinedine Zidane will be hoping to get the best out of the player this season and wants the highly rated player to return to action.
