Eden Hazard is pleased that Kylian Mbappe will not be joining Real Madrid. Hazard claims that the competition for spots has gotten stiffer.
Mbappe was largely expected to join Real Madrid after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired this summer. In the greatest football contract ever, he completed a complete 180-degree turn and prolonged his tenure at PSG by three years.
Hazard has recently stated that the failed trade may have been a gift in disguise. Since joining Los Blancos from Chelsea in 2019, the Belgian has battled for form. Injuries have limited his playing time this season, limiting him to only six starts.
Mercato Sports reports that Hazard feels relieved that the French superstar won’t be playing in the Spanish capital.
”This is rather good news. Competition for places is already tough at Real, but with Kylian Mbappé, they would have become even tougher. Now I have to show the coach that I’m ready, that I can play. But since my operation, I feel better. Nothing will change in my way of approaching things. All my successes are also due to the way I approached them.”
The 31-year-old intends to turn over a new leaf next season and deliver impressive performances for Madrid.
