The football gods have been cruel towards former Chelsea star Eden Hazard.
The Belgian international has been a shadow of his former self ever since his move to Real Madrid with fitness issues and injury problems plaguing the start of his career in Spain.
Hazard was considered one of the best players in Europe during his time in London, having won the Premier League and the Europa League twice with Chelsea while scoring a whopping 110 goals and providing 92 assists in the process.
Hazard duly established himself as a darling and a legend amongst the Blues faithful.
And he still continues to rep the London side despite his move to the Los Blancos as the Belgian was captured wearing his custom-made Chelsea shin pads during Real Madrid’s defeat against Levante.

However, things are going from bad to worse for Hazard at his dream club.
After what was only his second appearance since returning from a 16-match absence due to an ankle injury, he suffered another fracture to the same ankle.
It’s still early days with respect to Eden Hazard’s Madrid career but his current situation begs us to ask the question, if a return to Chelsea is still on the cards for the Belgian.
Stamford Bridge certainly wouldn’t mind watching their beloved son back in the blue kit again.
