Eden Hazard has cost Real Madrid £65,000 PER MINUTE since £143million move from Chelsea in 2019

EDEN HAZARD has reportedly cost Real Madrid £65,000 per minute since his £143million move from Chelsea in 2019.

Spanish newspaper AS revealed the staggering sum after it emerged the Blues will end up banking £143m from Real over three years after Hazard completed his switch 18 months ago.

The Belgium international, 29, has played just 26 times for Real since then, scoring only three goals.

And the LaLiga champions are sure to be wondering whether the £65k per minute they’ve spent is looking value for money.

Indeed, Hazard is currently out injured for the rest of 2020 with a hamstring problem.

He has now been sidelined for a staggering 41 games during his Bernabeu stint.

And there are still six games to be played between now and the new year, including a make-or-break Champions League tie with Gladbach on Wednesday.

Hazard’s latest injury is the NINTH separate problem he’s picked up in the Spanish capital.

The winger suffered a muscle injury at the start of October, causing him to miss six games.

While Hazard also missed the latest international break after contracting coronavirus.

By comparison, Hazard missed just 20 games through injury during seven years at Chelsea.

And Real will be desperately hoping to see some sort of bang for their buck in the near future.

Hazard scored 110 goals for the Blues while winning five major trophies, and could yet rediscover his old form.
