Hazard rejects £40m Newcastle move

Eden Hazard has shunned a move to Newcastle after Real Madrid accepted an offer worth over £40m’, with the former Chelsea star ‘hoping to attract a bigger club.

The 30-year-old has failed to impress in the Spanish capital since arriving for £88million, with injuries, poor form, and accusations of weight gain at the Bernabeu.

As a result, Hazard has fallen down the pecking order under Carlo Ancelotti, with Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo preferred by the Italian coach.

Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is keen to sell the winger in January, with the La Liga giants looking to raise funds for the potential arrival of Kylian Mbappe in the summer.

According to Spanish outlet El Nacional, that looked set to happen imminently after Perez accepted an offer of £33.4million, plus £8.3million in add-ons, from Newcastle.

The Magpies have already shown they’re not afraid of splashing the cash as they attempt to climb away from the Premier League relegation zone.
