To the surprise of millions of madridistas (and millions of fans from other clubs), Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Eden Hazard will not leave Real Madrid in the summer market.
Despite the fact that the talented Belgian winger has practically not played in the current season, the Italian coach declared that the 7 will stay to try to show the quality that we all know him.
ANCELOTTI: “EDEN HAZARD STAYS AT REAL MADRID”
“I haven’t talked about it with Hazard, because his plan is quite clear. He is staying. And I think he’s left with a lot of motivation because he hasn’t had a great time in recent years. He wants to show all his quality, which for many reasons he has not been able to show. Hazard’s plan is quite clear: he stays to show the quality of him next year”.
Can Hazard genuinely be an important player at this Chamartín club? “I think he will have minutes next year because he has a level, there are many games and there will be rotations, which we haven’t done many this year”.
Considering what they paid (about 115 million euros), the expectations generated and how little he has produced for the team, Eden could well be labeled as the worst signing in the history of Real Madrid.
We will see if he manages to turn his situation around and succeed in the club of his dreams.
It seems complicated, really.
Undefeated data. In 3 seasons with Real Madrid, Eden Hazard has only played 3,318 minutes. He has only seen activity in 65 games. Devastating.

Undefeated data. Although he has not had any leading role, Eden Hazard has already been 2 times champion of the Spanish League and 2 times champion of the Spanish Super Cup. In addition, he has already reached a UEFA Champions League final.
