NEWCASTLE is said to have opened talks about Eden Hazard’s return to the Premier League.
Defensa Central claim Real Madrid are looking to get rid of the former Chelsea star, 31, after a dismal season in Spain.
Many injuries have made Hazard only 65 games in nearly 3 seasons, of which the Belgian player has only scored 6 goals.
But rich Toon is ready to give Hazard a fresh start in the British top flight.
The winger won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup during his time at Stamford Bridge.
And he was also awarded the title of Premier League Player of the Year for the 2014/15 season.
Newcastle are looking to improve their performance in the summer market after 5 wins in the last 6 matches to help them stay 7 points away from the relegation zone.
And English football fans still remember Hazard as one of the best players to ever shine in the tournament.

Real would only be too happy to give the green light to a deal.
But they do NOT believe Newcastle, or any of the other suitors, will want to sign Hazard permanently.
However, Real are happy to loan Hazard – as long as most of his £400,000-a-week salary is covered – to free up room for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
However, his brother Kylian insists Hazard has no intention of leaving the Bernabeu and wants to see his lucrative signing.
He told Het Laatste Nieuws: “Eden made his career. He’s fine anywhere.
“His family feels good there, he has a contract until 2024 and I think he’ll wait until then.”
