Real Madrid has officially announced that Eden Hazard will be leaving the club at the end of the season, with his contract being terminated a year ahead before it initially expires.
The decision comes after a season in which the Belgian winger has had limited playing time and faced numerous challenges.
Hazard’s uncertain future now awaits him, as he bids farewell to the Santiago Bernabeu following the team’s final game of the campaign on Sunday.
Real Madrid confirmed the news, stating, “Real Madrid Football Club and Eden Hazard have reached an agreement whereby the player will leave the club as of 30 June 2023.”
The statement also acknowledged Hazard’s four-seasons at the club, during which he secured an impressive tally of eight titles, including one European Cup, one Club World Cup, one European Super Cup, two LaLiga titles, one Copa del Rey, and two Spanish Super Cups.
Real Madrid expressed their appreciation for Hazard’s contributions and extended their best wishes to him and his family for the next phase of his career.
This decision by Real Madrid reflects a larger picture of the club’s attempts to part ways with Hazard, although the player himself has consistently expressed his desire to remain in Madrid, despite his limited opportunities to showcase his talents at the Santiago Bernabeu.
