Real Madrid: Eden Hazard wants surgery and likely to miss rest of season

Eden Hazard has once again been a protagonist in Real Madrid news this week with the news of his latest injury setback.

A report in Cadena Cope now outlines that the Belgian attacker is adamant in his demands to have surgery on an ankle injury, which would rule him out of the remainder of the campaign.

Hazard apparently wants to have the surgery in London with the doctor James Calder, who operated on him while at Chelsea in 2017.

The Belgian star was diagnosed with a muscle injury in the right psoas and whilst there is no timeframe given for his absence, that injury could rule him out for between four and six weeks.

Hazard has participated in just 14 matches this campaign and he has been beset by injury problems since his move to the Spanish capital in 2019.
