Saudi Arabian giants eyeing move for mega-money Real Madrid flop

Eden Hazard has become an outcast of sorts at Real Madrid in recent years. Although the Belgian remains a well-liked figure within the club, no one in the camp believes he has what it takes to turn his fortunes around, following a forgettable start to his career at Santiago Bernabeu.

Hazard has indeed scored only seven goals in 73 competitive matches for Real Madrid, who spent around €115 million to secure his services in 2019.

With his contract expiring in 2024, Real Madrid are facing immense pressure to offload Hazard in the summer of 2023, knowing it will be their last chance to recoup some amount of the fortune they spent in 2019.

According to Foot Mercato, Real Madrid’s prayers might just be answered by Al Nassr next summer, as the Saudi Arabian outfit have shown the desire to sign the Belgian international.

After making headlines by signing Cristiano Ronaldo, Al Nassr are ready to further enhance their team sheet in 2023. They have been linked with moves for Sergio Ramos, N’Golo Kante and even Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.

But it appears they have now set their sights on Hazard, who has recently announced his retirement from international football following Belgium’s poor showing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Al Nassr head coach Rudi Garcia knows Hazard well, with the duo having worked together at LOSC Lille. Garcia even played a key role in helping the former Chelsea starlet make his professional breakthrough and it appears he is now ready for a reunion.

At the age of 31, Hazard still has a few more years under his belt and could form a formidable attacking partnership with Ronaldo at Al Nassr. And with his contract expiring in 2024, a summer move could make sense for all parties involved, including Real Madrid.
