How much Real Madrid are “ready to accept” for former Galactico as pair of Premier League clubs circle
Eden Hazard: Premier League legend turned sour?
Eden Hazard left the Premier League on a high, joining Real Madrid from Chelsea for a massive 103 million pounds in 2019 after delivering the Europa League title to Stamford Bridge, starring in a 4-1 win over London rivals Arsenal.
However, he has had a time to forget at the Santiago Bernabeu since joining.

He has played just 54 times across three seasons, totalling only 2800 minutes. Much of this has been due to injury, with transfermarkt recording that he has missed a whopping 61 games thanks to various issues that have kept him on the sidelines.

In his absence, Vinicius Junior has placed himself firmly at the front of the queue for the wide berths.

Real Madrid ‘ready to accept £21m’ for the Belgian
As per the Sunday Express, Real Madrid are “ready to accept” just 21 million pounds to part ways with the Belgian, now 30 years old, as they look to trim their squad ahead of future investment.
According to the report, both West Ham United and Everton are interested in the wide man, although Everton would need to make plenty of sales first as they look to avoid Financial fair play sanctions.
Meanwhile, a return to Stamford Bridge cannot be discounted on sentimental value alone.
Would Hazard excel were he to return to the Premier League, or has that ship sailed already?
