Hazard Warning: Chances of Chelsea star going to Madrid this month double

Could Eden be heading to sunnier shores this January?


The odds of Eden Hazard joining Real Madrid this month have more than halved overnight, amid speculation that the Belgian superstar could be on his way to La Liga.

We have had to cut the odds from 12/1 to 5/1 that the Chelsea star heads to the Bernabeu.

If he does leave, Antonio Conte could turn to Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal (7/2) or PSG forward Edinson Cavani (11/2) to replace him.

Meanwhile, out of favour David Luiz could also be on the way to Spain too – with Barcelona (5/2) leading the chase for the defender.

Asked about Hazard’s future spokesman Paddy Power said: “Things are already pretty Hazard-ous at Real Madrid, as they trail Barca by some distance in the league.

“But the Bernabeu could feel like the garden of Eden compared to Stamford Bridge.”
