When Real Madrid completed the transfer that saw former Chelsea attacking midfielder Eden Hazard leave Stamford Bridge in favor of a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, the football world thought the Spanish giants had finally signed a replacement for their legend Cristiano Ronaldo – or at least, something close.

Truthfully, Hazard was a great player while he was still donning the Blues jersey, and at his peak, he was a nightmare to Premier League defenders who suffered from his technical wizardry, footballing excellence, and his overall work-rate. Hazard was tearing the Premier League apart with his tireless efforts and skillful brilliance that earned him a Status as a Blues legend. Chelsea fans were utterly bitter to see their god make the decision to leave a place he called home since signing from French Ligue 1 side Lille, but ended up bidding him Farewell and wished him the best of luck for the future.

Hazard’s troubles at Madrid started right from the very first day he stepped feet at the ib after arriving looking overweight from his summer vacation. The club’s doctors assessed him and found out that he did not do well enough to take care of his body and it resulted in him developing a body structure that deprived him of the right level of physical fitness.

Since moving to the La Liga, Hazard has never played up to five games consecutively and has either been ruled out of games due to illness or injuries suffered in training or elsewhere. While Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane keeps backing the Belgian superstar to come good at the Los Blancos, he is running out of time to justify the hefty fee that was paid to secure his services some months ago. He is currently out injured and will miss Madrid’s next game as well.
