The Belgian winger was signed by Real for around €100m – with add-ons pushing the figure to potentially €146m!
Hazard was then valued at €150m after excelling at Chelsea, but that has reduced prominently in recent years.
Let’s look at 3 major reasons behind this drop:
1. Injuries: Hazard has been too injury-prone at Madrid. He’s missed over 60 games for Los Blancos 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 shining at Madrid.
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 players signed for over €100m, that is poor contribution. His poor form is a major reason why Hazard’s value has dipped.
