Eden Hazard's nightmare spell at Real Madrid will finally come to an end after the two parties mutually agreed to terminate his contract on Saturday.
The Belgian winger had failed to live up to expectations since joining the club from Chelsea in 2019 and made just six appearances in the Spanish top-flight this year.
In a statement on their website, the club said: 'Real Madrid CF and Eden Hazard have reached an agreement whereby the player will be released from the club as of June 30, 2023.
'Eden Hazard has been part of our club for four seasons, in which he has won 8 titles: 1 European Cup, 1 Club World Cup, 1 European Super Cup, 2 Leagues, 1 Copa del Rey and 2 Spanish Super Cups.
'Real Madrid wants to express its affection for Eden Hazard and wishes him and his entire family the best of luck in this new stage'.
So much had been expected of the exciting Belgian talent but with just seven goals in four years, it's fair to say he's struggled in Spain.
With such a poor return from his 76 appearances for Los Blancos, it's understandable why the Spanish giants have decided to let him leave for free.
