Eden Hazard Has Cost Real Madrid An Eye-Watering Amount Per Minute

Real Madrid have paid a frankly unbelievable €72,000 for every minute that Eden Hazard has played for them to date.

Hazard arrived at the Bernabeu in summer 2019, and it has not been a great time for the Belgian since then.

Hobbled by injuries for large portions of his Madrid career to date, the forward managed just one goal and four assists in 22 appearances in all competitions last season. He has followed that up with two goals in six matches so far this time round.

Spanish outlet AS reports that the 29-year-old's transfer fee was €100 million, and, as he has played 28 games to date, this works out to €72,000 per minute on the pitch.

In pounds this equals £64,785.60, which for comparison is more than the £60,000 Everton paid in entirety for Premier League star Seamus Coleman back in 2009.

Hazard's latest setback has been an muscle injury he received against Alaves last week. This comes after testing positive for Covid-19, which had ruled him out for much of November - and has led to many cursing his luck at the Bernabeu.

Despite this, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez backed him last month to regain his best form and play at the European Championships next summer.

"I just can see it, I think 2021 is going to be a wonderful year for Eden Hazard and for all the Red Devils fans," Martinez told reporters."He is in good spirits and is looking forward to getting back as quick as he can to play football again.

"I have got no doubt that in 2021 we are going to see the best version of Eden Hazard."
