Three years after Eden Hazard arrived at Real Madrid in the summer of 2019, nobody could have predicted that he would be a bit-part player in a Blancos club led by Carlo Ancelotti.
The Belgium international, on the other hand, was benched for Barcelona’s 4-0 thrashing on Sunday and has now been on the bench for five games in a row, with his most recent appearance coming against Alaves on February 19, when he played just six minutes.
Due to injuries and questions about his form, he has now failed to appear in all seven Clasico matches played during his tenure in Spain, and the coaching staff at Santiago Bernabeu looks to have lost faith in him.
What became of Hazard?
Hazard is perplexed and disappointed by his removal from Ancelotti’s plans, according to reports, because he believes his fitness issues are behind him.
“He truly wanted to play the game,” those close to the 31-year-old attacker have remarked of his failure to play against Barcelona. He’s depressed. In his entire career, he has never been as fit as he is now.”
Hazard believes he is doing everything he can to persuade Ancelotti of his worth, but the Italian manager continues to prefer Vinicius Junior on the left wing, while Rodrygo and Marco Asensio compete for playing time on the right flank of central striker Karim Benzema.
Hazard and fellow outsider Gareth Bale are left kicking their heels in the shadows while others become go-to choices in offensive areas.
Is Hazard on his way out of Real Madrid?
Real’s goal is to sell Hazard in the summer of 2022, despite a player purchased from Chelsea for €100 million (£83 million/$110 million) making little impact on the first squad.
A loan arrangement could be the only viable alternative for all parties, with Real still having to cover some wage obligations, as finding a buyer for a player whose value has dropped while on an expensive contract will be difficult.
Hazard’s stock is still high in the Premier League after a memorable seven-year stint at Stamford Bridge, making it the greatest market for him.
Due to clear emotional ties, a return to Chelsea was being considered, but sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich and an ongoing takeover saga in west London have complicated matters significantly.
Hazard, for one, has not rocked the boat at Madrid and will calmly await a solution that will bring a trying chapter in his career to an end.
He doesn’t want to make a move just for the purpose of it, risking more damage to his career, but Bernabeu’s upper management will keep a careful eye on his predicament as another window of opportunity opens in June.

It’s a pity that such fate befall a great player like Eden Hazard,sometimes it’s better to stay in your comfort zone, especially when you have become a legend,respected and adored coupled with the fact that you earn a lot there.It’s happened to many great players who left their comfort zone for greener’s pasture only to end up being disappointed,players like Henry,Song,Fabregas,Coutinho,Messi and many more,he was supposed to have stayed at Chelsea, because since his departure Chelsea has won some precious trophies and he is not a hard-working player, especially in training,there is no doubt that he his very talented,but in Madrid he has to change his approach to training and I think that has a negative effect on him.I wish him the very best going forward in his career and I still wish things turn out good for him in Madrid.
