Real Madrid Spending £138 Million On Eden Hazard Is Being Called "The Worst Business In Football History"

Eden Hazard's £138 million transfer to Real Madrid is being called "the worst in history" due to his lack of playing time.

The Belgian international has made just 25 La Liga appearances since arriving from Chelsea in June 2019.

With that has brought just three domestic goals and many are beginning to wonder if the transfer is genuinely cursed.


Hazard does have a winners medal for last season's La Liga in his trophy cabinet, but his contribution was minimum.

Up to 11 different injuries have hampered the 30-year-old who could now miss Euro 2020 with his country.

Many are upset at the developments considering Hazard's incredible standards while at Chelsea.

Seven years in England saw him win two Premier League titles, two Europa Leagues as well as the FA Cup.

Individually, he was named PFA Player of the Year in 2014/2015 after leading the Blues to a title.

One fan commented: "Kills me to see stuff like this, Eden has been hit by injury after injury, has nothing to do with his quality."

Another added: "It's been awful business. He's hardly kicked a ball for them. Not Hazard's fault, but still awful business."

A third claimed: "This doesn't get spoken about enough."

While someone stated: "He's a great player but Madrid's medical staff are shocking. If he was at any other club right now he'd be performing unbelievably."

Speaking ahead of Tuesday evening's Champions League clash with Atalanta, manager Zinedine Zidane admitted there is a problem with Hazard's fitness.

He said: "They're things that I can't explain. I want to be positive and hope that it's not too much of a problem.

"Something's up, because he was never injured in his entire career (before joining Real) or there were very few injuries. It's something new.

"I can't really give any more of an explanation. We want to help him and hope he's back as soon as possible.

"We're going to try and figure out why it's happening (the club's injuries), but right now we can't explain it. We've spoken about things like the lack of pre-season, amount of games and the mental aspect."

Madrid currently lead Atalanta 1-0 from the first leg thanks to a Ferland Mendy strike.
