Eden Hazard, the Belgian football player, will be leaving Real Madrid after enduring several seasons plagued by injuries, as announced by the club.
Hazard, who joined Real Madrid from Chelsea in 2019 for a record-breaking fee, struggled to find his footing due to ankle injuries soon after his arrival. Throughout his time at Real Madrid, he made just 54 league appearances, scoring seven goals.
Real Madrid confirmed the agreement for Hazard's departure, expressing their appreciation for him and wishing him the best for his future endeavors.
Another player, Marco Asensio, also revealed his departure from Real Madrid at the end of his contract. Asensio had a successful tenure with the club, winning major titles, but struggled to secure a consistent starting position.

Hazard is set to bid farewell to the Santiago Bernabeu during Real Madrid's last match of the season. While Hazard initially intended to stay, Real Madrid wanted him to leave, resulting in an agreement.
Retirement is a possibility for Hazard, but no decision has been made yet. Since joining Real Madrid, Hazard has made 76 appearances, scoring seven goals and providing 12 assists.
