Eden Hazard is “sad” at Real Madrid after being linked with a move to Newcastle United.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has expressed concerns about Eden Hazard’s current demeanor, as speculation about the 30-year-old’s possible departure from Real Madrid grows.

Roberto Martinez has spoken about his admiration for Eden Hazard, claiming that the Real Madrid attacker is’sad’ about reports that he is set to join Newcastle United.

The Belgian was arguably Chelsea’s best player when he moved to Real Madrid in 2019, but he has struggled to make an impact with Los Blancos due to fitness issues.

Hazard, who was a star player in the Premier League for seven seasons, has only five goals in 54 games for Real Madrid this season, and has only made four starts for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

The out-of-favour player has been heavily linked with a January move to Newcastle, who have recently purchased the club and are looking to bring in new talent to save their season.

Martinez, who coaches Hazard for the Belgium national team, said that despite being in the best shape he’s been in in a long time, Hazard appears’sad’ at the moment.

“Hazard is medically in the best moment since he arrived at Real Madrid,” he said on COPE’s El Partidazo.

“In football terms, he’s sad; this is the first time he’s been in this situation.”

“He is a player who has always led winning projects, and he no longer does, but he is a footballer of exceptional talent, and that is never lost; you must have faith in him.”

Hazard scored 85 goals in 245 Premier League appearances for Chelsea, helping them to two Premier League titles, the FA Cup, the League Cup, and two Europa League titles.

Hazard has already expressed his desire to leave, and Ancelotti has stated that he will allow him to do so if he wishes.

“Never in my coaching career have I forced a player to stay when they want to leave,” the former Chelsea manager said.

“I have no doubts about that in my own mind.”

The former Lille striker scored 21 goals in his final season with the Blues, but only four for Real.

As rumors of his departure grow, he has yet to score a goal this season.
