Lille Want Eden Hazard Back And Could Swap Him With Their Star Player

Eden Hazard could make a stunning return back to Lille, with the French club reportedly willing to offer Jonathan David to Real Madrid in exchange for the struggling Belgian star.

MARCA reports David's agent made a claim that this would be his client's final season in Ligue 1, and the reigning French champions hope to use this to their advantage.

Hazard has endured a miserable time at the Bernabeu and hasn't come close to showing the form which justifies the £90million fee paid to Chelsea for his services in July 2019.

It appeared that the only way was up for Hazard following his big-money move to the La Liga giants, after scoring 110 goals in 352 appearances for the Blues, and winning two Premier League titles, two Europa Leagues, one FA Cup and one League Cup during seven highly-successful years at Stamford Bridge.

But the 30-year-old has since scored just five goals across 57 appearances across all competitions for Los Blancos, and Lille may be about to end his nightmare spell in the Spanish capital.

Meanwhile, David is one of the stand-out striking prospects in Europe, after netting 15 goals in 26 appearances for Lille so far this campaign.

His agent, Nick Mavromaras, revealed that the Premier League is a possible next destination for his client, but explained that a move to Spain is just as likely in an interview with Radio Canada.

"For us, the goal is to finish the season in Lille, but it will be his last season there for several reasons. I think the Premier League is a good option for him," he said.

"I think that he likes Spain a lot also because he likes the feeling of the ball and the very technical players. These two leagues are a big priority for him, but nothing is excluded."
