Eden Hazard was one of the best players in the Premier League during his days at Chelsea. Hazard wanted to play under Zidane at Real Madrid but unfortunately, Zidane left in 2018 before Hazard joined the club.
After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018, Real Madrid signed Hazard from Chelsea for a reported fee of around 160 million euros in 2019. The Belgian was seen to be the successor of Ronaldo. But, he has spent most of his days on the sideline due to injury in these 3 years at Real Madrid.
However, Hazard is determined to show his real worth to Real Madrid during the two remaining years of his contract.

Hazard stated in an interview with Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws, via Marca: “The coach knows that I still have two years here.”

Eden Hazard further said about how he feels about representing Real Madrid: “I’m still in my dream, I’ve always dreamed of this.”
“My life goal has been to play here. My family has always been happy here, [and] even now they are.”
“I feel good, the operation went well. Everyone knows I needed it, I was lucky to be able to do it. I’m [back] just in time for the Champions League final.”
Hazard concluded by commenting about the pressure of the UCL final: “I try to laugh and forget about the pressure.”
