Eden Hazard‘s 2015-16 season has gone from bad to downright embarrassing.
After losing to West Ham United on Saturday, Chelsea lost in the Capital One Cup tournament to Stoke City after a missed penalty kick from Hazard. The outrage at the reigning Premier League MVP has the Belgian superstar looking for the nearest exit – preferably one that leads to Spain.
According to the Metro, Hazard has allegedly demanded that his agent get to work on a transfer out of London and has Real Madrid as his dream destination. Fichajes.net reported that Hazard considered his benching against West Ham to be the ‘final straw’.
The Metro noted that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ‘a fan’ of Hazard and would be highly tempted to bring the 24-year-old Belgian into the fold at the Bernabeu.
Hazard helped lead Chelsea to the Premier League and League Cup titles in the 2014-15 season, earning Player of the Year honours in the process. This year, however, Hazard does not have a goal to his name and the club is toiling at 15th on the Premier League table.
Chelsea were eliminated from the League Cup tournament with their penalty loss to Stoke, as their own season goes from bad to worse.
