Eden Hazard’s contract with Spanish club side Real Madrid has been terminated.
Hazard and Real Madrid agreed to terminate the contract on Saturday on mutual consent.
In a statement posted on the club website, Real said: “Real Madrid CF and Eden Hazard have reached an agreement whereby the player will be released from the club as of June 30, 2023.
“Real Madrid wants to express its affection for Eden Hazard and wishes him and his entire family the best of luck in this new stage.”
Hazard had endured a nightmare spell at the Bernabeu since joining the club from Chelsea in 2019, and failed to live up to expectations from when he signed.
During his four years in Spain, the Belgian won the European Cup, Club World Cup, European Super Cup, two Leagues, one Copa del Rey and two Spanish Super Cups.
Hazard left Chelsea for Real Madrid in 2017/18 season but didn’t have a good spell in the four years he spent at Real Madrid.
