Hazard moved to Real Madrid in 2019 for a fee of £ 103.5 million, but failed to show his true form in the Spanish capital due to injuries.
It’s brick admitted that Hazard’s injuries at Real Madrid cannot be explained and that the club hopes to be able to return to the game soon.
“Something’s going on,” Zidane said when asked about Hazard during a news conference Monday.
“He has never been injured in his career and this is new to him. I can’t explain it anymore.
“We all want to help him. I hope he’ll be with us soon.”
The terrible magic of Eden Hazard at Real
Since moving to Real Madrid, however, Hazard has already missed 54 games and counting due to a combination of short-term and long-term injuries.
His longest spell on the sidelines came last season, when he suffered a foot fracture in December 2019 and missed more than two months of action.
A bad injury record saw him fight for any rhythm on the field, as he managed to score only four times for the club in 36 games in all competitions.
The Belgian arrived with a lot of hype because the fans saw him as a player who could replace Cristiano Ronaldo on the left flank. Real Madrid lacked meaning and goals this season, and Hazard’s attack could have contributed well.
Hazard has already turned 30, and there aren’t too many peak years left in him. His contract with Real Madrid expires in 2024, and he hopes to return soon and be the player everyone expected when they signed him.
The Los Blancos are facing a crucial summer transfer window, so it remains to be seen whether the club will truly support him or land him for new signings.
