Eden Hazard, the Belgian footballer, is set to leave Real Madrid this month, as confirmed by the club. The decision comes after an agreement to terminate his contract a year early. Hazard, 32, joined Madrid from Chelsea in July 2019, signing a five-year deal worth an initial €100 million. However, his tenure at Madrid has been plagued by persistent injury problems, limiting his appearances and impact on the field.

Hazard’s Journey at Real Madrid

Hazard’s journey at Madrid has been a tumultuous one. His four seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu were marred by persistent injury problems. He made just six LaLiga appearances this season, four of them as a substitute, and scored no goals. His injury problems began during his first season in Madrid, with an ankle fracture requiring surgery and the insertion of a metal plate. This caused further problems before being removed two years later.

The End of an Era

Despite the challenges, Hazard has been part of Real Madrid for four seasons, during which he won eight trophies: one European Cup, one Club World Cup, one European Super Cup, two Leagues, one Copa del Rey, and two Spanish Super Cups. “Real Madrid C.F. and Eden Hazard have reached an agreement whereby the player will be released from the club as of June 30, 2023,” Madrid said in a statement.

Hazard’s departure from Real Madrid marks the end of a significant chapter in his career. The former Belgium captain never recovered his form and fitness, and he saw his preferred left-wing position occupied by rising star Vinicius Junior. He retired from international football in December, after Belgium’s group stage exit at the 2022 World Cup.

Looking Forward

As Hazard prepares for his next move, the football world will be watching closely. His departure from Real Madrid is a significant event in the football world, marking the end of an era for both the player and the club. As Hazard embarks on his next journey, fans and pundits alike will be keen to see where his career takes him next.
