Eden Hazard ‘in talks to join Al Nasr’, and put an end to Real Madrid’s nightmare move to Saudi Arabia

Eden Haz­ard could join Al Nasr along­side Cris­tiano Ronaldo.

The 32-year-old Bel­gian strik­er has endured a tough sea­son, scor­ing sev­en goals in just 73 appear­ances dur­ing his three-and-a-half years at Real Madrid.

The for­mer Chelsea play­er retired from inter­na­tion­al foot­ball after Bel­gium suf­fered a shock group stage exit from the Qatar World Cup last month.

Accord­ing to Foot Mer­ca­to, his Euro­pean career may be com­ing to an end.

Ronal­do’s new home Al Nasr has shown inter­est in poach­ing to Sau­di Arabia.

Rudy Gar­cia has already been in charge of Haz­ard for four years at Lille.

Al Nasr is said to have already agreed to trans­fer talks with Hazard.

The Sau­di club has secured a lucra­tive for­tune by sign­ing Ronal­do, 37, to a €200m annu­al con­tract, so it’s no doubt that it has the mon­ey to bring the Whites play­er to the Mid­dle East. .

Real Madrid, who have Haz­ard enter­ing the final year of his con­tract this sum­mer, could also be inter­est­ed in a move.

The Span­ish cham­pi­ons will want to recoup some of the €147 mil­lion they paid before their con­tract ended.

Haz­ard isn’t the only thing Al Nasr is after.

Bel­gium’s for­mer Chelsea team-mate N’Go­lo Kante (31) could be on the move.

And so is Ronal­do’s for­mer Real Madrid team­mate Ser­gio Ramos, 36, who now plays for Paris Saint-Germain.

Mean­while, Ronal­do is expect­ed to make his debut against Eti­fac on Jan­u­ary 22 after being sus­pend­ed for two matches.

Al Nasr are des­per­ate to see him ignore the sus­pen­sion and play next week­end against Al Shabaab.

How­ev­er, in order to do so, it is nec­es­sary to solve the prob­lem of exceed­ing the quo­ta of for­eign play­ers in the Sau­di league, and cur­rent­ly Ronal­do can­not be registered.

Before the Por­tuguese star can play, the club must sell or sack one foreigner.
