Actual Madrid to promote Hazard and usher in Erling Haaland
To be proudly at the top of the La Liga table ahead of El Clasico is almost the best position for Real Madrid at this point in the 2021/22 season.
Despite recent defeats to Espanyol and Sheriff, Carlo Ancelotti’s side have appeared compact in defense and sharp in attack so far this season, with many of their big names already playing at a high level.
Karim Benzema, who crossed the finish line for France in the Nations League final on Sunday evening, has continued his good form from last season. Los Blancos’ only real disappointment was Eden Hazard’s stop-start career at the Santiago Bernabeu.

What Real may not have accepted is who is actually buying the Belgian? It’s unlikely to get cheap, but no club will want to pay for a player who spends as much on the treatment table as they do on the court.
Since Hazard joined Real from Chelsea, allegedly as the new Galactico, things have not gone according to plan.
Including the most recent problem, the player has missed 60 games per transfer market since switching, which means he was out of action for a total of 416 days – and the trend is rising.
