Eden Hazard is reportedly considered the most toxic player on the Real Madrid team. The Belgian has struggled in Spain since joining Chelsea in 2019.
According to El Nacional’s report, Hazard is considered the worst signing in Real Madrid’s history. Signed for €140m, he scored 18 goals for the club while suffering the same number of injuries during his time at the Santiago Bernabéu.
According to reports, Hazard’s presence in clubs is considered toxic as he is unwell most of the time. Despite joining the club in 2019, he has yet to make an El Clasico appearance.
Carlo Ancelotti believes Vinicius Jr. is the better player, so he used him less when he was in good shape. The Belgian player has been linked with a move away from the club, with Hazard himself hinting at his departure in the summer of 2023.
“In January it is impossible [leaving the club] because I have family and I like the city,” said Hazard. “But in summer it is possible that I go. I have one more year on my contract and it’s the club’s decision. If Real Madrid tells me in the summer that I have to leave, I will accept it. But I would like to play more, show more that I can play, that I am a good player,” he said in November 2022.
Chelsea star vs Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard
The Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard has been compared by former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher to Chelsea legend Mihailo Mudrik.
The Liverpool legend has given his new signing plenty of accolades after his performance against the Reds last week.
“That doesn’t bode well for defenders, I can assure you that. He was only on for about 20 minutes, half an hour, at Anfield, but I mean we always talk about players needing time to settle,” he told Sky Sports before Chelsea’s goalless draw with Fulham on Friday.
“It was very Hazard-like, one of the greatest players we’ve seen in the Premier League and one of the best Chelsea players we’ve seen, Eden Hazard.”
Carragher further states:
“He looked really good when he came on against Liverpool, and Liverpool did well to get a 0-0 [draw] in the end – he was fantastic when he came on. What he reminded me of was not just the pace, but his actual quick feet.”
Madrick played just 45 minutes in Chelsea’s goalless draw with Fulham when Graham Potter revealed he had a bad cold.
