Real Madrid willing to take 50 per cent loss on Eden Hazard after controversial footage

Real Madrid are willing to take a 50% loss on Eden Hazard after footage emerged of the Belgian laughing and joking in the wake of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard joined Real Madrid in 2019 for a club-record fee of around £103.5million, with the eventual cost of the deal potentially rising to £143m.

But the Belgian, who scored 110 goals and provided 92 assists in seven seasons at Chelsea, has been unable to replicate that form at the Bernabeu.

In large part that has been down to the 30-year-old’s injury struggles, with Hazard making just 31 starts since his switch to the Spanish capital.

Critics had been willing to forgive such bad luck, but that was before footage emerged of Hazard laughing with Kurt Zouma on Tuesday night.

El Chiringuito host Josep Pedrerol laid into the Belgian, saying: “Madrid are eliminated, and look at Hazard. Two years taking the p**** out of Madrid fans. Two years overweight.

“A lot of people say he is the new Bale. Madrid have spent years waiting for him, negotiating for him, spent £100m on him.

“They’ve just been eliminated, and it is possible for him to find something funny?

“After Zidane gave him the opportunity to play when he didn’t deserve it? He laughs at everyone?”

According to Spanish newspaper ABC, Hazard’s conduct at Stamford Bridge left Madrid officials furious.

The La Liga champions have become tired with his lack of professionalism and will listen to offers in the region of €50million for the star.

Real Madrid are struggling financially and require funds to finance a rebuild of their aging squad this summer.

Hazard could be one of the first names out of the door at the Bernabeu, but he’s unlikely to be the last.
