Eden Hazard not eyeing Real Madrid exit in January


Eden Hazard is not expected to push for a move away from Real Madrid in the summer, despite his continued struggle for minutes.

The 30-year-old has started just four La Liga games this season, finding himself stuck behind the electric Vinicius Junior in the pecking order. Manager Carlo Ancelotti has even publicly admitted he prefers the young Brazilian these days.

Those comments, coupled with tenuous links to Chelsea and Newcastle United, saw Ancelotti confess that he would not stand in the way of Hazard if he asked to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, but Marca don’t expect that to happen.

The belief is that Hazard is not humouring an exit from the club midway through the season and he is solely focused on finally proving himself to the Real fans after years of frustration.

Hazard, who joined from Chelsea in 2019 in a deal which could rise up to £150m, has managed just five goals in 53 appearances, with repeated injury struggles and underwhelming form seeing him fail to impress at the Bernabeu.
