Eden Hazard wants to leave Real Madrid this summer transfer window and is reportedly targeting a return to Chelsea.
The Belgium international left Stamford Bridge to join Madrid in a £130m deal in the summer of 2019 after winning the Europa League with the London side.
But since moving to Spain, Hazard has struggled to hit top form due to several injuries and has been restricted to just 10 starts in the Spanish league and only three more in the Champions League this campaign.
The 30-year-old was also forced to apologise after he angered Madrid fans by laughing and joking with Kurt Zouma just moments after his team’s Champions League exit to the blues this month.
According to Spanish television show El Chiringuito de Jugones, Hazard is now ready to leave Madrid this summer and all he wants is a return to Chelsea.
Hazard spent seven seasons at Chelsea and helped them win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Europa League two times.
Earlier this month, there were reports in Spain that Madrid are prepared to sell Hazard at the end of the season after his disappointing spell at Santiago Bernabeu.
Madrid, who are keen to improve their attack with the signings of Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, are believed to be entertaining offers around £43.4m for Hazard.
Real Madrid are also looking to offload Luka Jovic, Gareth Bale, Dani Ceballos, Mariano and Brahim Diaz in order to bolster the club’s finances.
Speaking earlier this month, Zinedine Zidane stressed that he wants to see Hazard succeed at the club. He said: ‘All the players have their hearts in the club but for now it hasn’t been possible to see the Eden Hazard we want to see.
‘But I believe he is going to get there. It’s a difficult moment with everything that’s happened but he has a contract and what he wants is to succeed here.’
