Will he ever return to England? Eden Hazard is believed to have rejected a move to Newcastle United.
As it has been widely reported over the past many months, Hazard has not enjoyed a successful career at Real Madrid since joining from Chelsea on a record fee.
According to MARCA, Newcastle United have made a mega offer to bring back the 31-year-old Belgian to the North East of England.
“Eden Hazard appears to be edging ever nearer to an exit from Real Madrid, and Newcastle launched an ambitious bid for the Belgian which was accepted by Los Blancos but rejected by the player himself,” the report said.
“The Magpies launched an offer for 40m euros to Real Madrid plus add-ons which was looked upon favourably by Los Blancos but the Belgian was not keen on a move.
“Though the current state of Newcastle’s league position, despite new owners, has reportedly put the Belgian off the move.
“Hazard is looking for a transfer to a Champions League club and, with Newcastle far from that at this current point in time, it was not a realistic proposition for the former Chelsea forward,” added the report.
Meanwhile, Hazard, who scored for Los Blancos against Elche in the Copa Del Rey on Thursday night, is now looking ahead to the La Liga clash against the same team this weekend.
