Eden Hazard has been released by Real Madrid after being labeled the “scam of the century”.
Real Madrid officially announced the termination of his contract on Thursday. Hazard joined Real Madrid in 2019 from English Premier League (EPL) side Chelsea in an £88 million ($143.1 billion) transfer. His weekly wage was £470,000 ($760,000), the highest on the team.
After joining Real Madrid, his career took a sharp decline. Injuries and an overweight controversy turned him into a fringe player. It got to the point where he wasn’t speaking to Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti, and he ended his Real Madrid career with 54 league appearances and four goals in four seasons.
Since then, interest in his new destination has grown. Superstar-rich Saudi Arabia, Fenerbahçe, and his hometown club Chelsea have all been mentioned. However, these were just rumors without substance.
That’s when Spain’s Mundo Deportivo reported a shocker. It’s possible that Azar will retire without finding his next team. After retiring from the Belgian national team at the end of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, there’s a possibility that he might choose to hang up his boots. 토토사이트
The reason is even more shocking. He loves Madrid, the Spanish capital, too much.
The outlet reports, “Azar could retire from active duty after being released by Real Madrid. He has settled in too well in Madrid over the past four years. He now speaks fluent Spanish. He and his family want to stay in Madrid,” the outlet reported.
“Since parting ways with Real Madrid, only one team has actually shown interest in signing him and made a substantial approach. The Vancouver Whitecaps of the American Major League Soccer (MLS). The decision was up to him. However, it’s unlikely that he’ll make this choice in favor of his desire to stay in Madrid. He could retire to stay in Madrid,” he added.
