At Real Madrid, Eden Hazard isn’t working out. Despite the fact that the forward has recovered from his serious injuries, he is not in Carlo Ancelotti’s starting lineup.
It’s time for the 30-year-old to consider a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, and he’s received a bizarre offer from a team in his home country of Belgium.
KVC Westerlo is now in Belgium’s second division and is owned by Turkish businessman Oktay Ercan, who is eager to invest and bring the team to success.
They are on the verge of promotion, with a 10-point lead at the top of the second division, and sporting director Hasan Cetinkaya has expressed interest in signing Hazard.
“I suppose I can call Eden Hazard a friend,” Cetinkaya stated in an interview with Het Nieuwsblad. “I first met him when he was at Lille.”
“He assured me he would play for Fenerbahce one day. It would be more difficult to persuade him to visit KVC Westerlo, but you never know. He may come here to continue his career.”
Hazard may not be ready to return to Belgium at the age of 30, but he is well aware that his future lies outside of Real Madrid, and he will be searching the market for the appropriate fit.
