Real Madrid might consider selling their most expensive galactico signing in the next summer transfer window
Over the years, Real Madrid has managed to add some of the best players in their Galactico project which includes the likes of Luis Figo, Raul, Roberto Carlos, and Cristiano Ronaldo. Club president Florentino Perez started the Galactico initiative in the early 2000s and has still kept it a part of the team’s recruitment policy.
Los Blancos have had great success with superstar signings like Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale as this duo played a major role in kickstarting Madrid’s legacy of winning the Champions League. However, both players have parted ways with the club and have gone to ply their trade in other European leagues.
In the summer of 2019, Zinedine Zidane‘s side recruited one of the top players of the Premier League as the Spanish supergiants signed Eden Hazard from Chelsea for a reported fee of 100 million euros. The former Lille winger became the most expensive signing for the club beating Gareth Bale’s previous record.
The Belgian international has failed to make an impact at the Santiago Bernabeu as last season the player made only 16 appearances in La Liga and had scored only one goal in the league campaign. The 29-year-old winger has had injury issues last term which saw the player miss more than half of the matches for Los Blancos.
The former Chelsea talisman is yet to make his first appearance in the ongoing season as currently, the Madrid no.7 is nursing a muscle injury in his right leg. Hazard is likely to miss this season’s first El Clasico which is to be played on 25th October.
Perez might consider selling the Belgian next summer if the player fires blank in the ongoing season. The Madrid authorities will not hold themselves back in taking such a bold decision as they would look to bring in another Galactico signing. Kylian Mbappe from PSG has on been the wishlist of the Los Blancos for a long time and there has been a lot of speculation regarding the Frenchman joining Zidane’s side next summer.
Hazard knows that his time at Madrid might come to an unfortunate end if he fails to deliver for the Spanish Champions in the ongoing season, according to reports. The former Blues superstar will be hoping to get back to his prime and emulate his Chelsea success at the Santiago Bernabeu.
