Eden Hazard set to see out his Real Madrid contract

Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard will terminate his contract with Real Madrid, according to his brother Kylian.

Hazard is contracted at the Bernabeu until 2024 and has been linked with a move away from Spain after suffering injuries in his frustrating first three seasons.

“He won’t let Real go until he proves he’s the strongest out there. He’s proven himself at every club he’s been in, and for me, he doesn’t want to leave. I don’t think he’s going. If the president wants him to leave, and he knows he doesn’t have a chance to play, I don’t. I think it will stay.

“But I can assure you, he will do everything in his power to prove that he is the best player at Real Madrid,” according to reports from RTL Sport.

Hazard is on track to improve in his season, with his total minutes played for Real Madrid as of 2020/21 if he plays a more regular role in the final weeks of the season.

The 31-year-old made seven La Liga and seven substitute matches last season, and already has seven starts and 10 bench players in 2021/22.
