How much did Real Madrid pay for Hazard? How many goals and assists did he make?
The white team has announced that they have terminated their contract with the Belgian player on the 30th, which is one year earlier than what was originally agreed upon.
The time of Eden Hazard at Real Madrid has come to an end. What began with a love affair by Zinedine Zidane for the Belgian ends with him being fired by the club one year before his contract expires. The decision comes as a bit of a shock as the ex-Chelsea player said he was happy to stay and play out his contract.
Real Madrid wanted to negotiate the player away with other teams on a possible sale and maybe get some of the money they spent on him. Unfortunately, no team was willing to bet on him at his contract’s expense, which is around 15 million euros net a year. He is the second-highest earner aside from Benzema. Thus they were faced with the decision to keep him one more year and have him take up a spot for another player or cut him, and they chose the latter.
