Ancelotti’s plan for Eden Hazard

According to AS, Eden Hazard, who paid attention to his physical preparation during the holidays, is considered by Carlo Ancelotti as a replacement option for the position of center forward for the coming season at Real Madrid.

Finally the right season for Eden Hazard at Real Madrid? Failed (and regularly injured) since his arrival for 115 million euros in 2019, the Belgian attacking midfielder still seems to be an option for Carlo Ancelotti. AS report that the Italian coach counts on his 31-year-old in the rotation.

There is no indication that Eden Hazard will start at the start of the school year, which would be extremely surprising. For now, there is talk of a “plan C”. The Belgian could be used as Karim Benzema ‘s understudy at centre-forward. With the departure of Luka Jovic, the sector is light. Barring a recruitment, Borja Mayoral is the only professional striker in the squad.

He would have worked hard this summer

But will Eden Hazard be operational and fit? This is the big question mark. So far, the initial feedback is positive. Even if training did not resume until July 14, the Belgian would have carefully followed the physical program prepared by Antonio Pintus for the holidays. Just to continue with the good feelings apparently felt at the end of the season, since he no longer wears a titanium prosthesis in his right ankle.

Eden Hazard only played 23 games in all competitions (18 in the league) last season. The results are even poorer when expressed in minutes. The total is just over 900. His contract ends in 2024.
