Eden Hazard likes Instagram post linking him to Real Madrid

Published 2 Comments

Eden Hazard may have dropped a subtle hint about his happiness at Chelsea after liking a Real Madrid post on Instagram today.

The Belgium international, who was only brought on for the final seven minutes of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday, was spotted by one eagle-eyed Instagram user liking a post from the account @433.

The post shows a photo of Hazard playing for Belgium, alongside the caption: “According to Spanish media Eden Hazard is on Real Madrid’s radar for a 2016 transfer”.

This isn’t the first time that Hazard has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu - some feel the current PFA Premier League Player of the Year could be the long-term successor to Cristiano Ronaldo - however, these latest reports originate from the unreliable Spanish website, Fichajes.

That Real Madrid are potentially interested in signing Hazard, though, would come as a no surprise. The Spanish giants are always on the hunt for their next Galactico and Hazard, a world-class performer on his day, must surely be on their radar at least.

They’re presumably on red alert given that Hazard has lost his place in Chelsea’s starting line-up over recent weeks.

Relationship between Mourinho and Hazard

Jose Mourinho wants the attacking winger to contribute more defensively - the Portuguese coach is looking for solidity in his team following a dreadful start - and has not been impressed with his star player’s performances at the beginning of the 2015-16 campaign.

Something similar happened between Mourinho and Hazard during the 2013-14 campaign, leading to suggestions that the Belgian would leave the Bridge for Paris Saint-Germain.

That transfer failed to materialise after the two men patched up their relationship, but the lure of Real Madrid might prove too irresistible to turn down for Hazard - based on his latest Instagram activity, anyway.
