Cristiano Ronaldo: Eden Hazard could go to Al-Nassr

Eden Hazard, Real Madrid, 2021/22

Eden Hazard is in talks with Cristiano Ronaldo’s new club Al-Nassr, amid rumours of an imminent Real Madrid exit.

Hazard has been one of Madrid’s worst ever signings, having been superb for Chelsea prior to the move.

The Belgian was hyped up to be the heir to Lionel Messi and Ronaldo’s throne as the best in the world but has flopped at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Now, with Hazard looking for a way out of Madrid, he is being linked with a move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr – where Ronaldo is now.

Hazard met with Al-Nassr boss Rudi Garcia to discuss a potential move, according to El Chiringuito.

The pair worked together at Lille, the club that Hazard made a name for himself before leaving for Stamford Bridge.

Ronaldo offered to Real Madrid

Real Madrid ignored several calls from Jorge Mendes for Cristiano Ronaldo to return to the club last summer.

That is according to The Athletic, which reports that Ronaldo’s agent Mendes attempted to call Madrid “several times” in an attempt to broker a return to the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, Mendes didn’t even manage to sit down and pitch a deal as Madrid simply ignored his calls.

The attempt to take Ronaldo back to Madrid was not following the rescission of his contract by Man Utd in November, but actually during the summer transfer window.

Ronaldo issued a transfer request to quit Man Utd at the start of July.

The 37-year-old cited his desire to join a club that was in the Champions League and could challenge for major trophies.

His agent Mendes offered him out to numerous clubs around Europe, including – according to The Athletic – Chelsea, Bayern and Real Madrid without finding a taker.

Ronaldo thus ended up staying at Man Utd and he was involved in a number of controversies and bust-ups with manager Erik ten Hag in the first half of the campaign.
