Arsenal met with Real Madrid this week, according to reports, to explore a possible loan move for Eden Hazard.
The 31-year-old, who is now recuperating from a leg operation, has failed to make an impact for Los Blancos this season, scoring one goal and providing two assists in 22 appearances across all competitions.
Hazard’s contract at the Bernabeu has more than two years remaining, but Carlo Ancelotti’s side are rumored to be open to selling him during this summer’s transfer season.
Arsenal met with Real Madrid earlier this week, according to Foot Mercato, to explore a possible ‘loan with an option to purchase’ in the forthcoming market.
However, the source indicates that Hazard is not considering a move to Arsenal at the moment, as he wishes to remain at Real Madrid and fight for his career.
The attacker is reported to be averse to leaving his current club during a World Cup year, believing that he can reclaim his best form next season.
Hazard was a standout for Chelsea in the Premier League from 2012 to 2019, but has failed to establish himself at Real Madrid following a big-money move to the Bernabeu.
