Real Madrid to sell Eden Hazard in January

Eden Hazard has been branded unprofessional by Thibaut Courtois' father, with the Real Madrid forward told it was not smart for him to be caught laughing with Chelsea players in the wake of a Champions League semi-final defeat.

Real Madrid will reportedly listen to offers for Eden Hazard during the January transfer window, as the club prepare to bring Kylian Mbappe to the Bernabeu in 2022.

Los Blancos failed to convince Paris Saint-Germain to sell Mbappe over the summer but are expected to return for the Frenchman either in January or at the end of the season when he could be available for free.

According to todofichajes, Carlo Ancelotti’s side are prepared to sell Hazard in order to make room for the World Cup winner to arrive at the club.

The report claims that the capital giants will listen to any offers that might be presented for the former Chelsea attacker during the January transfer window.

Hazard, who still has three years left to run on his contract at the Bernabeu, has scored just five times in 47 appearances for Real Madrid since a big-money move from Chelsea in July 2019.

The 30-year-old was handed a start against Celta Vigo in La Liga on Sunday night but was withdrawn in the 66th minute, and the Belgian’s replacement Eduardo Camavinga went on to net a debut goal.
