It’s been a challenging transition for Eden Hazard, Real Madrid’s star, the Belgian winger, since he moved to the Bernabeu in 2019. Because of his injuries, he has missed 65 games over the course of three seasons.
Carlo Ancelotti has given a significant update on the future of Eden Hazard, who has been struggling to secure a spot in the starting lineup for Real Madrid.
On Eden Hazard’s future, Carlo Ancelotti has given a crucial update.
Ancelotti has confirmed that Eden Hazard will remain at Real Madrid, according to renowned transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, despite interest from many Premier League clubs.
Aside from that, the Italian coach revealed that the 62-year-old Belgian icon will be a major part of his plans for the upcoming season. Hazard’s starting spot might be in threat if Los Blancos sign Kylian Mbappe in the upcoming transfer window.
It was claimed on Saturday by Fabrizio Romano that Hazard is in the club’s plans for the next season, based on what Ancelotti had to say about the Belgian star. The 31-year-future old’s in England is still up in the air, as numerous Premier League clubs have expressed an interest in signing him.
Hazard reportedly turned down a £40 million transfer to Newcastle United, according to the most current rumours. Ex-Chelsea midfielder Juan Cuadrado has played just 17 games in all competitions so far this season, but his latest performance against Elche suggested he may be rediscovering his best. On Thursday, Eden Hazard scored his 115th goal in the Copa del Rey as Chelsea beat Elche in the Round of 16 of the competition.
Hazard enjoys his best Real Madrid performance yet.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s comments following Eden Hazard’s best performance in the club’s colours since his £100 million move from Chelsea must definitely have him on cloud nine.
Hazard’s move to Los Blancos hasn’t been a success, and that much is clear. He’s been a shell of the player he was when he was playing for Chelsea, but his cameo in Real Madrid’s comeback win against Elche in the Copa del Rey may have paid back some of the fan base’s faith in him.
Gonzalo Verd put the minnows ahead in extra time in the 91st minute, but Isco equalised five minutes later with a header. Two minutes from time, Hazard pounced on a loose ball to score the game-winner and put the Spanish giants through to the quarterfinals.
It was only the Belgian’s sixth goal in 60 games, but it held the most weight.
