Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard is set to retire aged just 32 after having his £400,000-a-week Real Madrid contract terminated a year early, according to The Sun.

Hazard has endured a difficult four years at the Santiago Bernabeu after signing from Chelsea for £100million in 2019.

Hazard reportedly wants to staying in the Spanish capital with his family after leaving Real Madrid. He has settled well in Madrid and now speaks fluent Spanish.

Hazard, who retired from international duty after Belgium’s 2022 World Cup exit, could still join another club close to the city, though.

That option remains out of his hands, however, with just one club said to have approached the Belgian winger following his contract termination.

MLS side Vancouver Whitecaps have reportedly put a deal on the table for Hazard, but this would scupper his plans to stay in in the Spanish capital.
