Joy as Eden Hazard, a Chelsea legend, is about to make a comeback to the game of football
Unexpected: Eden Hazard, a Chelsea legend, is expected to play football again soon.
Following his departure from Real Madrid, who terminated his contract in June, Hazard is currently a free agent.
However, the winger will play for a worthy cause, according to L’Equipe.
The former international for Belgium will play on October 18 at the Stade de L’Epopee in Calais for the Varietes Club de France.
Founded in 1971, the VCF fields some of the greatest players of all time to fight against a variety of teams in around 40 charity matches annually.
Hazard is coming this year to work with World Cup champions like Didier Deschamps, the manager of France, and Laurent Blanc.
The 32-year-old will also be accompanied by Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy, two former teammates from Lille.
The famous Belgian’s career has collapsed since he moved from Chelsea to Real Madrid in 2019.
During his seven-year tenure at Stamford Bridge, the attacker scored 110 goals and collected 92 assists in 352 appearances, taking the Premier League by storm.
Hazard joined Santiago Bernabeu after signing a £130 million contract, having guided the Blues to two Premier League titles, two Europa League trophies, the 2018 FA Cup, and the 2015 League Cup.
But the former Lille player’s dream transfer to Real Madrid was short-lived as he struggled with injuries, finishing his four-year stay with just seven goals and twelve assists in 76 games.
As a result, the executives of Los Blancos terminated his £400,00-per-week contract.
During the summer transfer window, Hazard garnered considerable interest. Teams like Marseille and Lille, his previous team, made approaches, but he turned them both down.
