In this sense, it would be worth remembering that the Belgian playmaker, who joined the Whites in 2019 following a sensational stage in Chelsea, where he became a top star of the Premier League and conquered two league titles to be hailed as one of the best football players in the West London club’s history.

However, despite the expectation created at his arrival to Real Madrid, he was never able to reach his best level at the Madrilean team, where he scarcely scored 7 goals in 75 appearances with the Whites, being really far from the 110 goals netted in 352 games for Chelsea from 2012 to 2019.

In this respect, Eden Hazard himself, who announced his retirement last October at age 32 and confessed he was having a very happy life after leaving football, recently analyzed those last years of his football career in an exclusive interview with his former Chelsea teammate John Obi Mikel on One Obi Podcast.

The Chelsea legend revealed the reason why he had turned into a £100 million flop at Real Madrid, admitting that he was putting on four or five kilos every summer. “I was thinking you give so much for 10 months, you put your body at the highest level and people kick you, so your time off is your time off”, he said, and added "as a Belgian guy, we love beers because my country has the best beers in the world, so I’m not telling you I used to drink every day because it’s not true, but sometimes after a good game, one or two is nice”.
