According to reports in Spain, Real Madrid is considering returning Eden Hazard to Chelsea, and a player-plus-cash deal for Reece James could still be struck. Hazard left Stamford Bridge in 2019 for a dream £130 million move to Real Madrid, but the last two years have been nothing short of a nightmare.
The Belgian star’s time with Los Blancos has been marred by injuries, preventing him from reaching his peak form. Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich believes Hazard could become one of the best players in the world again if he returned to the club, according to Catalan outlet El Nacional.

Madrid would not be opposed to him returning to Chelsea in January or at the end of the season, but they want to recoup as much of the £103 million they paid for him as possible.
