Eden Hazard’s career is winding down after another season of frustration at Real Madrid, according to Chelsea transfer news.

Eden Hazard’s return to Chelsea has long been speculated.

After turning 32 on Saturday, Eden Hazard’s chances of a fairytale return to Stamford Bridge look increasingly bleak. He’s only played 98 minutes of league action for Real Madrid this season and is looking for a way out after a disastrous move in 2019.

It’s been almost 11 years since he signed for Chelsea in 2012, and neither party has had their way since they split up three and a half years ago. Despite winning the Champions League in 2021, the Blues have steadily declined.

Hazard has scored seven goals in 73 games since joining Chelsea for more than £100 million. His time in Madrid has been marred by injuries, and it appears that he is nearing the end of his career. Both Newcastle and Chelsea have been linked with bringing him back to England, but no deal has been struck.

Reports of a potential loan move to relieve the burden or a low-cost deal for an ageing player have circulated for some time, but no club has acted. Despite Madrid’s willingness to let him leave in 2021, that now appears to be a pipe dream, and Chelsea fans are unlikely to see their former hero in blue again.

Chelsea reportedly interested in acquiring Real Madrid’s Eden Hazard

Hazard, at 32, is the answer to very few questions. He lacks the speed, fitness, and skill that propelled him to the top of the Premier League during the 2010s. Newcastle has progressed and now has a younger, hungrier team than in previous years, whereas one of Chelsea’s problems this season has been signing players past their prime and without much planning.

Hazard will have to make a decision in 2023, and it doesn’t appear that Chelsea will step in and offer him a solution. According to the Athletic, Hazard will meet with his agents in February to discuss his future, though no offers have been made. Hazard has already announced his international retirement after failing to make the squad.

The final ship for Hazard’s return may have sailed, with Potter looking to create an ambitious group of young players with speed and energy.
