Chelsea ‘earned £20m’ from Hazard last season

Chelsea are believed to have earned £20m last season as part of the deal which saw Eden Hazard move to Real Madrid despite the Belgian star’s struggles in Spain.

After seven sensational seasons at Stamford Bridge, Hazard joined Los Blancos in 2019 for a reported initial £89m, with the potential final fee standing at an eyewatering £150m with add-ons.

But so far the switch to La Liga has not worked out for Hazard, and he has suffered with numerous injury problems and has made just 37 appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos.

Nevertheless, according to The Athletic Hazard is continuing to make the Blues money despite his lack of playing time.

They claim that the West Londoners earned £20m in the last campaign due to the fact Madrid won La Liga and qualified for the Champions League, even though Hazard’s contribution was minimal.

And it is also thought further add-on fees will be triggered if Madrid go on to win the Champions League this season, which would slightly soften the blow if they were to knock out Chelsea.
