Real Madrid’s ‘creeper’ Eden Hazard (32) has decided to stay put.
“Azar has made it clear that he has no plans to leave Real Madrid,” Spanish media outlet AS reported on June 3, adding, “Azar has one more year until his contract expires on June 30, 2024.”
“The time for Madrid to sell would be now. However, Azar knows that any strategy by Real Madrid is almost impossible as he plans to stay at the Bernabeu.”
Azar was the ultimate shadow striker. After scoring 22 goals in 49 games for Lille in the 2011-2012 season, he moved to Chelsea in 2012-2013 and hit his stride. He played for the Blues for seven seasons until the 2018-2019 season, scoring double-digit goals in six of them. 스포츠토토
However, it went downhill from the 2019-2020 season. That’s when he switched to Real Madrid for his debut season in a £142 million ($237.7 million) deal that became the highest transfer fee in the English Premier League. Azar was brought in as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for Juventus, but injuries, big and small, have limited him to just seven goals and 11 assists over the past four seasons. He’s also gained so much weight that he’s been humiliatingly nicknamed “Fatty,” making him one of Real Madrid’s worst signings of all time. This season, in particular, he only made 10 appearances, including six in the league.
Real Madrid were unable to get rid of Azar. He earns a weekly wage of £470,000 ($786,000), the highest in the team, and his performances have barely earned him a place on the substitutes’ bench. This season, he hasn’t played a full 90 minutes in six league games. His inefficiency has led to little interest from other teams.
Azar has no reason to leave Real Madrid. He’s still being paid a lot of money within the confines of his contract. Like Gareth Bale, he has no intention of leaving even if he”s called a “parasite” or a “fraud”. He is paid 70,000 euros (approximately $98,000) per minute.
“I want to fulfill the rest of my contract with Real Madrid and I’m not considering leaving the club at the end of the season,” Azar recently told Marca.
