Real Madrid’s new number 23, Eden Hazard is enjoying his first pre-season as he has joined the Los Blancos and has managed to become one of the star attractions on their tour of Canada and the United States thus far.
The Belgian’s dribbling ability was no secret in the premier league and also was not hidden from the world but he has shown new energy and new light as he joined the Real Madrid camp and has already started to showcase his skills. In a video posted by Real Madrid, the winger was seen dribbling and swooning his team-mates in the training session
The Premier League Player arrived at Real Madrid’s home of Santiago Bernabeu from Stamford Bridge in June for a fee which could end up exceeding £150 million ending his seven-year stay in England.
Eden Hazard walks in the footsteps of the English megastar and former Real Madrid Galactico, David Beckham as he dons the No. 23 on his back and his talent in the craft of football has shown that it would be not that much of heavy lifting as he fills in the former England captain’s shoes. Hazard joked that he wanted the No. 10 jersey which he wore at his former club of Chelsea but the Balon D’or winner Luka Modric has been its proud recipient. Later Hazard said, “I got I touch with Luka(Modric) with the help of Mateo(Kovacic) and let him know I Was joking about getting the number 10 jersey”.
The 28-year-old arrived in Spain with a sterling reputation as one of the World’s sought after players and he will be expected to held Zinedine Zidane’s side fight for major honors once again next season. But it seems hazard is already proving his worth and that he is up to the task in the pre-season training, having left several of his Madrid team-mates overwhelmed and in awe with his superb-dribbling-skills. Hazard has become the new hope for Madrid along with Luka Jovic as they try to fill the void left by the Portuguese sensation Ronaldo after he left for Juventus in 2017 and Madrid under Julen Lopetegui went through a trophy-less season.
Adding salt to the wounds of the Los Blancos they, as defending champions in the Uefa Champions league fail to qualify to pass the young Ajax team in the early round of 16. This season’s transfer window has brought Madrid quality players as Zidane’s team go for a massive trophy hunt in 2019-20 season and Hazard is the most starred acquisition among all them as he showcased his skills in Madrid’s pre-season training sessions as they get ready to conquer Canada and the United States of America.
The Belgian Star could make his debut for Real Madrid against Bayern Munich in Houston on 20th July as a part of International Champions Cup, and that would be the great stage to showcase the first glimpse of the skills that Hazard will bring to the table in Madrid for the years to come.
