Eden Hazard, the former Chelsea star and current free agent, is expected to announce his retirement at the age of 32, despite receiving several offers from Saudi Arabian clubs. After enduring four injury-plagued years at Real Madrid, the 126-cap Belgian has attracted interest from teams such as Vancouver Whitecaps, Nice, Marseille, and his old club, Lille. However, reputable source Get Football News France reports that Hazard has made up his mind to quit playing and is likely to make a formal announcement soon.
Since his high-profile move to Real Madrid for £115 million in 2019, Hazard has struggled to replicate the exceptional form he displayed during his seven successful years at Chelsea. Aside from the constant setbacks caused by injuries, there have also been concerns about his overall fitness and conditioning.
Following Belgium’s disappointing World Cup exit in December, Hazard decided to retire from international football. Now, having been without a club since his contract with Real expired in June, it seems he has chosen to bow out gracefully rather than continue his career aimlessly.
Although he could have secured a lucrative deal in Saudi Arabia, Hazard’s decline since leaving Chelsea suggests that he has prioritized his legacy over financial gains. During his time at Real Madrid, he only managed to appear in six LaLiga matches last season, resulting in a total of seven goals in 76 appearances for the club.
On the other hand, Hazard’s achievements at Chelsea firmly establish him as one of the club’s all-time greats. In his 352 appearances for the Blues, he contributed an impressive 110 goals and 92 assists, solidifying his status as one of the Premier League’s finest-ever players.
