Eden Hazard snubs Premier League club after £40 Million bit accepted by Real Madrid

Eden Hazard has reportedly snubbed a move to Newcastle United despite the mega-rich Magpies seeing an offer of £33.4million, plus £8.3m in add-ons, accepted by Real Madrid.

Hazard, 30, has endured a torrid time in the Spanish capital since arriving from Chelsea in 2019 for an initial fee of £88m, with a series of injuries and a lack of form hampering the Belgian.

As a result, Hazard has fallen down the pecking order under Carlo Ancelotti, with Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo preferred by the Italian coach.

Florentino Perez has looked to shift the 30-year-old this January transfer window, with Los Blancos preparing for the expected arrival of Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer this summer.

And according to El Nacional, Perez has accepted an offer of €40m (£33.4m), plus €10m (£8.3m) in add-ons, from Newcastle with Eddie Howe desperate to strengthen his beleaguered squad in a bid to escape relegation this season.

However, Hazard has snubbed the Magpies’ approach, with the Spanish report claiming that he will only leave for a ‘big’ club, such as Chelsea.

The Blues have long been linked with a reunion with Hazard, who dazzled at Stamford Bridge over his seven-year spell, scoring 110 goals and providing 92 assists in 352 appearances for the club.
