With a spell many might perhaps describe as lacklustre so far at Real Madrid, here is the latest regarding Eden Hazard’s future.
Since his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, the winger's time in the Spanish capital has been riddled with injuries. Hazard has missed 69 matches for Los Blancos since joining the club in 2019, according to Transfermarkt.
According to Sport, however, the Belgian is still eager to justify the price tag that made him Real's most expensive signing ever as he works his way back from a calf injury.
The 31-year-old is said to be confident he can replicate the form that saw him establish himself as one of Europe's premier talents at Lille and Chelsea, despite much speculation suggesting that the Spanish giants could look to sell him.
Los Merengues anticipate Hazard being fully fit in time to face Levante in LaLiga action on 11 May, and will hope to have him in peak condition for a potential UEFA Champions League final against either Liverpool or league rivals Villarreal should they get past Manchester City in the semi-finals.
The Belgium captain will, however, have a hard time displacing in-form forwards Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo, with Carlo Ancelotti's men looking all but set to clinch the club's 35th league title.
With about two years remaining on his Real contract, Hazard is reportedly intent on staying with the record European champions in an effort to prove himself.
