Hazard arrived in the Spanish capital in a blockbuster £130million transfer in 2019 after spending seven years at Stamford Bridge.

But he never managed to match his Chelsea form at Madrid, scoring just seven goals in 76 appearances during an injury-plagued spell.

Thanks to his talent, Hazard earned a whopping £170million over the course of his career.

But with domestic seasons beginning all over Europe, no club has yet found a place for the lively winger.

In June he vowed: “I’m still capable of being a professional footballer, my body can take it.”

Hazard has been linked with Inter Miami as well as teams in his native Belgium.

According to the postthe two-time Premier League winner is “weighing his options” and could even retire.

Spanish outlet ASreport, meanwhile, that he is considering a move to Brazil, Saudi Arabia or the MLS.


Hazard joined Chelsea in 2012 after stepping onto the scene at French club Lille.

He went on to play 352 times for the Blues, scoring 110 goals and providing 92 assists.

The Stamford Bridge favorite also shone for his country, most notably helping Belgium reach the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.

However, after being eliminated in the group stage in Qatar last year, Hazard retired from international football with 126 caps.
