After featuring for the Spanish giants, Real Madrid in his four injury-hit seasons, Eden Hazard has become a free agent and instead of looking for a new club, the Belgian forward is reportedly 'set to announce his retirement'. The 32-year-old has taken retirement in December last year from the Belgian national team after their disappointing exit from the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

After joining Real Madrid for an initial $112 million in 2019 from Chelsea, Hazard played 76 matches for the 14-time UCL winners across all competitions and recorded just seven goals and 11 assists in his four years at the Santiago Bernabeu.

According to a report by Foot Mercato, many football agents have contacted the Belgian’s representatives to offer him a move to French clubs including Marseille, OGC Nice, and Lille. However, Hazard has rejected all the offers and is considering taking retirement from the sport.

During the Red Devils' 1-1 draw against Austria in a Euro 2024 Qualifier in June, Hazard expressed his belief in returning to professional football. "I still feel capable of being a professional footballer. I've been resting for two or three years. I still have a bit of energy," said Hazard.

When asked about his next move, the former Chelsea star stated, "Honestly, I don't know yet. After three complicated years (2019 to 2022), I just want to spend time with my family and go on vacation, like everyone else. We've read a lot of stuff in the last few days, and a lot of nonsense."

The two-time Premier League and Europa League winner has reportedly decided to retire from the sport despite his family and loved ones motivating him to continue his illustrious career. Hazard and Real Madrid mutually agreed on parting ways one year earlier than the contract deadline.
