Zinedine Zidane has lost his patience. The French coach was one of those who approved the arrival of Eden Hazard, when the Belgium star landed on Real Madrid from Chelsea in a deal closed for $115 million on July 2019. But the player could never perform as expected and the Spanish side can’t wait him any longer.
Zidane has told president Florentino Pérez to do what he wants with Hazard, as he has already lost his patience, according to the reports of the Spanish press. The offensive midfielder could now enter a barter and be the exchange currency that the Galacticos may use to sign other players.
The game that Real Madrid lost against Athletic Club for the Spanish Supercup semifinal was the straw that broke the camel for Zizou. Hazard played from the start and was sent out after a very poor performance. He already completed 32 matches with Real Madrid, in which he scored just three goals and gave seven assists.
With a contract signed until 2024, Real Madrid don’t want to raffle a player that costed them much, but want to exchange him. Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland are the two great objectives of Zidane for the next transfer window and putting Hazard in the barter for them is now being considered a serious option.
