Real Madrid should sell Eden Hazard
Eden Hazard’s latest injury blow could have dramatic consequences for the rest of his Real Madrid career. At least this is Dimitar Berbatov’s feeling, who believes that Los Blancos should now be looking to sell the Belgian striker. A whole host of injuries have seen Hazard miss 350 days in just a year and a half with the Spanish giants, and there are questions if he could be fit enough to show the talent that he all has. “Real Madrid should consider the possibility of selling Hazard,” Berbatov explained in an interview. “He has had a lot of injuries since arriving in Spain, and it prevented him from showing the brilliant football that he played at Chelsea.”
The money that Real Madrid invested in him wasn’t the right decision
“If it were something random, it would be a different matter. But the point is that a player gets injured over and over and over again. It’s a sign that there is another problem that is affecting him”. When he pushed further on the situation with Hazard in Madrid, Berbatov looked at the move from a financial point of view and wondered if he could leave in the summer. “Will he be able to get back in shape and show that the money that Real Madrid invested in him was the right decision? Now the answer is no,” he added. “It is true that Hazard just turned 30 and still has a lot of time to contribute. But this question is one which needs to be asked. Hazard has not proven anything in Madrid yet, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he left in the summer.”
Berbatov’s career is inextricably linked with Manchester United, but he believes that the Old Trafford club’s struggles since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure will never befall Real Madrid. “I don’t see Real Madrid going into a spiral-like to what United have gone through for several seasons since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson,” he confirmed. “Real Madrid tend to solve their problems very quickly and won the LaLiga last season, and they are still in the Champions League this season. Plus, the best players continue to want to sign for Real Madrid, and that’s always a boost; they are a much greater force who cannot fall into a crisis like this.”
