Eden Hazard is one of the greatest players in Chelsea’s history but his move to Madrid resulted in one of the sharpest declines in modern football.
The Belgian’s estimated market value has fallen by an unbelievable €132m and now rests at a measly €18m.
Here is a look at 3 major reasons behind this drop:
1. Injuries: Hazard has been too injury-prone at Madrid. He’s missed over 60 games because of injuries in the last three years. A general lack of fitness and tendency to get injured has hindered the winger, holding him back from doing his very best.
2. Age: Transfermarkt takes a player’s age into account for their market values. At 31, Hazard’s best days are behind him – which is why he’s valued so low.
3. Poor form: Hazard has never really got going at Real Madrid. In 59 appearances, he’s scored just 5 goals and registered 10 assists. For a player signed for over €100m, that is almost hard to believe. His poor form is a major reason why Hazard’s value has dipped.
