Newcastle United weighing up a move for Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard

Newcastle United are reportedly among the Premier League clubs who are eyeing a move for Real Madrid ace Eden Hazard as per the report in ESPN

After securing a move to the Spanish capital back in 2019 for a whopping £100 million fee. The Belgian hasn’t had a great time at La Liga, scoring only five goals in 52 appearances in all competitions over the past few campaigns. 

Following Saudi backed company’s takeover, The Magpies are linked with several big names to sign in the upcoming transfer window. And now they are looking to bring in the former Chelsea winger Eden Hazard. 

According to the report, Newcastle United are informed about the availability of Eden Hazard and the St. James Park outfit can seal a deal for the winter in the winter transfer window. The report further claims that it will not be easy for the Toon to sign the Belgian as fellow English club Chelsea are also in the race to bring the forward back to Stamford Bridge. 

Newcastle United pondering about a move for Hazard:

Signing Hazard will be a great acquisition for Newcastle United. However, given the player’s recent injury record, it will be a big gamble to invest a lot of money in the Belgian. 

The Magpies are in transition stages and signing young, talented players will be the better decision from the Toon hierarchy. So, landing a winger who has already reached his 30s might not be a shrewd decision. 

Meanwhile, following the sacking of Steve Bruce. Newcastle United are yet to appoint a manager and they are linked with the former AS Roma boss Paulo Fonseca. So, it will be interesting to see who they will choose in the end. 

Nevertheless, the Magpies are currently in danger of relegation. They are currently sitting 19th in the table with four points in nine games and without a single victory. So, the club’s management will have to make a quick decision and appoint a manager before getting too late.
