Real Madrid star set for stunning move to Chelsea after nightmare spell at the club

  • Eden Hazard has endured a torrid spell at Real Madrid since joining them in 2019 in what was a dream transfer move
  • A string of injuries have taken a huge toll on the Belgian's stint with the La Liga giants and has failed to live up to his billing
  • Reports now suggest Roman Abramovich is considering giving Hazard an escape route back to Stamford Bridge
  • The winger had a successful spell with the west London club across his seven-year stay as he won a number of titles with them including two league crowns

Hazard made a sensational dream £130million move to Madrid in 2019, but his stint with Los Blancos has largely been disastrous.

The winger has spent the majority of his time at Santiago Bernabeu on the treatment table, with a string of injuries hampering his progress at the club.

Shockingly, the Belgian has missed more games than he has played for Real, and has just one La Liga title to his name which he did not contribute much to.

Hazard's Chelsea career

This is a complete contrast to his spectacular career with Chelsea where he was arguably one of the best players in the Premier League.

During his stint in the English division, the 30-year-old tore apart defences as he helped the Blues win two league titles, the Europa League among other crowns.

He went on to be named Chelsea's Player of the Year on four occasions across his seven-year stay in west London.

TalkSPORT now reports Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is looking to end Hazard's nightmare Real career by bringing him back to Stamford Bridge.

Abramovich reportedly believes the winger may be able to rediscover his previous form and shine for his club once again.

Such a move would undoubtedly be a welcome idea by Real Madrid who would be more than happy to shift the Belgium international to free up room for summer target, Kylian Mbappe.

According to reports, Chelsea would only offer just £33million for their former star, a little over a quarter of what Real paid to secure his services.

Hazard's Madrid struggles

The development comes a time Hazard has fallen out of favour with the Real support base following an incident last season during the La Liga side's Champions League meeting with Chelsea.

At the time the forward was seen laughing and joking on the pitch with his former teammates despite Real losing 3-1 on aggregate to exit the competition.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has been handed a double injury boost after both Reece James and N'Golo Kante return to full training.

James has been nursing an ankle injury sustained during his side's Premier League defeat against Man City back in September.

Kante, on the other hand, has been in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19 and was not in action during France's UEFA Nations League triumph over Spain on Sunday, October 10.
