The two Premier League clubs eyeing up a January move for Eden Hazard revealed

Hazard struggling at Madrid

Since achieving his dream move to Real Madrid in 2019, it has been a horrible two years for Eden Hazard.

Joining Los Blancos as their latest marquee addition, the 30 year-old Belgian has managed just 5 goals and 9 assists in 53 appearances for the Spanish side, a poor return on the 103 million reportedly spent on him.

He was left out entirely in the most recent El Classico, despite being fully fit, with Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti admitting that he was out of favour with the Italian after their narrow victory.

For Hazard, his stock has never been lower.

Due to this, it is not inconceivable to see Eden Hazard make a return to the Premier League, where he had great success with Chelsea, ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

As per ESPN journalist James Olley, there are two clubs that would battle it out for his signature should he become available. The first, perhaps unsurprisingly, is thought to be Chelsea, who are missing creativity from wide areas due to the fitness problems faced by Christian Pulisic and the form of Hakim Ziyech.

The other? Newly taken-over Newcastle. It seems like a far fetched move, given that the Magpies currently find themselves in the relegation zone, but should the new owners wish to make a statement, a move for Eden Hazard would certainly fit the bill.

Much would surely depend on the calibre of manager at the club at the time, and the other business done, but it is certainly one to watch out for.

Chelsea fans, would you want Eden Hazard back at Stamford Bridge, and if so, would it be for anything other than sentimental value?
