‘I don’t want to go to Vancouver, I like Madrid’…Bet of the Century announces ‘shock retirement’?
Eden Hazard has been released by Real Madrid after being labelled the ‘bet of the century’.
Real Madrid officially announced the termination of his contract on the 4th. Hazard joined Real Madrid in 2019 from English Premier League (EPL) side Chelsea in an £88 million ($143.1 billion) transfer. His weekly wage was £470,000 ($760,000), the highest in the team.스포츠토토
After his move to Real Madrid, Azhar suffered a steep decline. Injuries and an overweight controversy turned him into a fringe player. It got to the point where he was no longer speaking to Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti. In total, Azar spent four seasons at Real Madrid, making 54 league appearances and scoring four goals.
Since then, interest in his new destination has grown. Saudi Arabia, which attracts superstars, Fenerbahçe, and his hometown club Chelsea have been mentioned. However, these were just rumours without substance.
This is when Spain”s Mundo Deportivo reported a shocker. It’s possible that Azar will retire without finding his next team. After retiring from the Belgian national team at the end of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, it”s possible that Azar will choose to retire from active football.
The reason is even more shocking. He loves Madrid, the Spanish capital, too much.
The outlet reports, “Azar could retire from playing after being released by Real Madrid. He has settled so well in Madrid over the past four years. He now speaks fluent Spanish. He and his family want to stay in Madrid,” the outlet reported.
“Since parting ways with Real Madrid, only one team has actually shown an interest in signing him and made a substantial approach. The Vancouver Whitecaps of the American Major League Soccer (MLS). The decision was up to him. However, he will not make this choice before he wants to stay in Madrid. He could retire to stay in Madrid,” he added.
