Revealed: Real Madrid's last-ditch plan to get Hazard firing

Eden Hazard’s time at Real Madrid has been less than ideal for the Belgian and for the club, but new boss Carlo Ancelotti is already thinking of how to get the best out of the former Chelsea star.

After finally securing his dream move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer of 2019, Hazard has made only 30 La Liga appearances across two seasons, with a measly four goals and five assists in that time.

A spate of injuries, criticism over his fitness and application and generally subpar performances have clouded what was one of the biggest transfers of the last decade, but not all hope is lost at the club.
