PREMIER - Abramovich wants to bring Hazard back to Chelsea
Eden Hazard left Chelsea for Real Madrid in the summer of 2019 for 100 million euros. It was not yet a resounding success for the Belgian international, partly due to injuries.
Hazard has only appeared in 51 official matches since his arrival at De Koninklijke and has scored five goals. With Real Madrid's grand plans in the summer transfer market, which include Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland as targets, it seems that Hazard is one of the players allowed to leave Madrid.
And that would have sounded like music to Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. El Nacional reports that the wealthy Russian 'is getting more and more confident' in a return of the former crowd favorite at Stamford Bridge. Abramovich's confidence also seems fueled by Real Madrid's financial situation, which will have to sell real players before it can land big stars.
Whether Hazard himself is also open to a return to the Premier League is not mentioned by the medium - which devotes a very small article to the rumor. Chelsea took Hazard from the French Lille in 2012 and conquered the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League with the Belgian.
