After meeting with representatives of Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard this week, Arsenal is considering a sensational summer swoop for him.
The Gunners want to bring the former Chelsea star back to the Premier League and get him out of his nightmare spell at Real Madrid.
The North Londoner’s good relationship with Real in recent years
Real Madrid intends to loan Hazard out next season before selling him in 2023, one year before his contract expires.
Following an initial inquiry in March, Arsenal returned to talks this week to discuss a possible loan switch with a buy option.
It’s a risk for both Arsenal and Real Madrid. The former Chelsea star could easily struggle for another year and see his value plummet to almost nothing. But, given that he’s not playing right now, it’s a risk that’s probably worth taking for all parties.
The decision of Hazard for Arsenal move
According to the report, Hazard does not want to leave the Spanish capital this summer.
The 31-year-old forward intends to extend his Real Madrid contract for the next two seasons.
He still believes there is still hope of turning his £130 million moves into a success.
Mikel Arteta is well-positioned to welcome Hazard to his ever-improving squad and Champions League football at the Emirates Stadium.
Hazard was linked with a move to Newcastle during the winter transfer window and is still interested in the playmaker.
The Belgian has made 65 appearances for Los Blancos scoring six goals.
He has made just seven LaLiga starts this season and has been benched in their last three games.
He isn’t the only high-profile Premier League player to relocate to Spain and struggle.
Premier League clubs may have the same hope that Hazard can regain his Chelsea form if he returns to England.
