Newcastle and Aston Villa eye shock £17m January transfer for Eden Hazard with Real Madrid giving up on Belgian ace

NEWCASTLE and Aston Villa are reportedly eyeing ex-Premier League top dog Eden Hazard with Real Madrid giving up on the £89million signing.

The Belgian ace, 31, joined Los Blancos from Chelsea in 2019 but his career in Spain has been halted by injury.

Hazard’s Real career could come to an end in January

Hazard was expected to become a mainstay at the Bernabeu but he has ultimately missed 72 games.

Despite his absence, Hazard has picked up two LaLiga titles and a Champions League.

However, a return to England could be on the cards, according to El Nacional, who say Real have lost faith in Hazard.

The report claims Hazard has told Real and Belgium team-mate Thibaut Courtois that he will be departing this winter.

Newcastle and Villa are likely escape routes and the two-time Prem winner would likely cost around £17m.

Hazard could boost the Magpies’ top-four chances.

Eddie Howe’s side are currently sat third in the Prem after 14 games played.

Villa, meanwhile, are down in 13th but have a Champions League standard manager in Unai Emery at the reigns.


A winter departure would be a sorry ending to Hazard’s Real career.

The player vowed to give it his all after their Champions League win over Liverpool.

 Hazard told the parade in Madrid the day after the club’s 14th success in the competition: “Madridistas, I’ve been here for three years with many injuries, with many things.

“But next year I’m going to give it all for you.”
