Reports: Real Madrid President Unhappy With 'Overweight' Hazard

Having failed to impress in pre-season so far, Real Madrid's record signing Eden Hazard is believed to have upset the club's president, who reportedly thinks the Belgian superstar is overweight.

Real have looked far from convincing in their preparations for the new season thus far, with most of the club's new acquisitions having disappointed.

Tensions seem to be rising behind the scenes, mainly due to the situation surrounding Gareth Bale, while Zinedine Zidane's relationship with president Florentino Perez appears to be deteriorating further.

The Frenchman left Los Blancos in May last year due to issues with the club's chief, and it now seems that matters are getting worse, with Zidane and Perez having different visions as to what is best for the team.

While Perez is believed to want to bring Neymar to the 13-time Uefa Champions League winners, Zidane feels there is no need to target the wantaway Paris Saint-Germain forward.

A new report suggests that there is now another problem that needs resolving, and that is the weight of record signing Hazard, who reportedly arrived for pre-season training seven kilograms heavier than expected.

According to Sport, club sources have confirmed that the 28-year-old is overweight, and that Perez has lost some confidence in the new marquee signing, one that Zidane requested.

While there is still a few more weeks to go until the 2019/20 season gets under way, the club will want Hazard to get his sharpness back sooner rather than later to avoid issues carrying on into the new campaign.

Another major setback is Marco Asensio's potential nine-month injury lay-off, while another two signings – Ferland Mendy and Luka Jovic – are also having problems with their fitness.

Do you think it is unprofessional of Hazard to arrive at pre-season heavier than required? Let us know in the comments section below.
