Eden Hazard is not set to leave Real Madrid this winter. The Red Devil wants to keep fighting for a basic place and has no ears for a transfer. That is not necessary for Real coach Carlo Ancelotti, who assures at a press conference that Hazard still fits into his plans.
“He has worked very well the past few days,” says Ancelotti. “He is in better shape than when he left for the World Cup. We have a very busy schedule so he will certainly have his playing opportunities. He certainly plays a role in my plans for the near future.”
Real will resume the competition on Friday with a move to Valladolid. After fourteen match days, the reigning champion of Spain is second in the La Liga with 35 points, two less than leader FC Barcelona.
Disappointing practice match
Last week, Eden Hazard made another minute for the Royal. In a practice match against Getafe, he was allowed to start on his favorite left flank in the absence of Vinicius. The former Red Devil, together with Benzema and Asensio, formed the attacking trio, but the match ended without many chances of a 0-0.
Hazard, who still has a year and a half contract with Real, missed another chance to show himself. Still, he wants to stay in the Spanish capital. Hazard is a family man and enjoys himself in Madrid. In the summer he would be open to a transfer if Real wants it. Then he has one year left on his contract and with that it is the last chance for Real to recover some of the 115 million euros it paid for him in 2019, which is the least Hazard can do for the club that he has with his performances. couldn’t pay back.
