Eden Hazard reveals he won’t be leaving Real Madrid this summer, despite only making ONE league start this season… with the former Chelsea star still Los Blancos’ highest paid player at £400,000 a week
- Eden Hazard has revealed that he will stay with Real Madrid until his contract expires
- Hazard signed a £400,000 a week contract when he joined from Chelsea in 2019
- The Belgian is having a hard time in Madrid and has only played 337 minutes this season
Eden Hazard has revealed that he will be out of contract with Real Madrid and will not be leaving the club this summer.
The Belgian became the most expensive signing in Los Blancos history when he joined the club in 2019 for £130 million, signing a five-year contract worth £400,000 a week.
However, since joining the Spanish giants, Hazard has failed to replicate the scintillating performances that made him so revered at Stamford Bridge ahead of his departure.
The 31-year-old was an unused substitute as Los Blancos claimed their first Copa del Rey in nearly a decade, but revealed after the match that he hopes to run out of his contract with the club.
“It’s been a difficult year, but with a very big team,” said Hazard Cadena SER.

“I have a good relationship with the club and also with the players. I want to play, but I know it’s very hard. I have to work and hope I can play more.’
Hazard has scored just four league goals in as many seasons since moving to the Bernabeu, and has rarely been used since Carlo Ancelotti returned to the club in 2021.
The former Premier League Player of the Season has played a total of 331 minutes in all competitions for his club this season.
However, the low point of Hazard’s time in the Spanish capital probably came during his only league start of the season against Mallorca in September.
Hazard only registered one shot despite being used as a striker and was substituted before the hour mark for Luka Modric with the score tied at 1–1.
Madrid eventually triumphed 4-1, but Hazard would have to wait until April before making another league appearance for the club.
