Opinion: Player Chelsea could swap with Real Madrid to get Eden Hazard back
Eden Hazard latest news today, Chelsea latest news today, Tuchel latest news today, breaking news from Stamford Bridge live update, Chelsea transfer news now, Chelsea gossip and rumours news today.
About three years ago, Eden Hazard secured his dream transfer from Chelsea to Real Madrid. The Belgium International has always expressed his interest in playing for Real Madrid and when the Los Blancos came calling, it was a dream turned to reality for the Winger.
However, Injuries, lack of playing time and his inability to make any good impression when given opportunity has turned the transfer of Eden Hazard to a nightmare. He’s currently into his third season at Santiago Bernabeu and he’s yet to hit the ground running. This season, he has made 14 La Liga appearances for the Carlo Ancelotti sides with just 1 Assist to show for it.
While all these are going on, Chelsea Fans are on high alert for a potential return of Eden Hazard to Stamford Bridge. Earlier this year, Real Madrid were reportedly seeking to bring Chelsea Right-back Reece James to the Spanish Club.

The Los Blancos also reportedly proposed a swap deal which will involve Reece James moving to Santiago Bernabeu while Eden Hazard will come to Stamford Bridge.
Of course, Chelsea Fans will always welcome Eden Hazard back to Stamford Bridge with open arms but not at the expense of a rising Star and one of club’s brightest like Reece James.
Roman Abramovich reportedly see it this way too, and according to Football London, the Russian Billionaire shut the door against any proposed deal that would involve losing any of the club’s academy graduate that are currently in the first team.
Since Reece James is off the table for Real Madrid, a realistic option that the Los Blancos could handpick in the Chelsea Squad is N’Golo Kante but that’s unlikely to happen given Thomas Tuchel’s inclination towards the Frenchman.
However, Real Madrid might be open to the idea of Hakim Ziyech being swapped for Eden Hazard. Like Eden Hazard, Hakim Ziyech is just another Player that has struggled at his new club. The 29-year-old posseses a terrific left foot which he uses to shoot the ball from outside and inside the box. He’s also capable of playing in multiple positions in the Midfield and in wide areas of the attacks as a Winger.
His impressive performance against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League during his Ajax days in 2019 is another reason why Real Madrid might be open to listen to swap deal involving the Morocco International and Eden Hazard.
Real Madrid has a strong attacking lineup with in-form Vinicus Jr and Karim Benzema. The Los Blancos have also agreed on a personal term with Kylian Mbappe and the Frenchman will join them next summer. They obviously have a great Attacking options but Hakim Ziyech’s move to Real Madrid for Eden Hazard to come home to Chelsea will provide the club with a quality depth.
