Real Madrid’s new signing Eden Hazard has urged the club to sign his former teammate Marcos Alonso from Chelsea.
Hazard, who left Chelsea in favor of a move to Real Madrid just this summer, has struggled to adapt to his new conditions in Spain so far, with the Belgian scoring just once since the start of the season.
However, Hazard isn’t the only Real player who’s been struggling to find form this year, as others players, such as Modric, Bale and Vinicius have also been disappointing. As well as these three, defender Marcelo has also been below-par this campaign, something that has lead to Hazard urging his side to sign former teammate Alonso.
As per Don Balon, the midfielder has recommended Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso as a replacement for the ageing Marcelo. The Spanish news agency further claims that Alonso is even willing to lower his wages in order to seal a move to the Spanish capital.
The 28-year-old has been in good form for Chelsea during the absence of Frank Lampard’s first-choice left-back Emerson Palmieri – hence, it is understandable that Hazard wants Real Madrid to sign him.
The defender has made seven Premier League appearances so far this season, and has already scored a goal and recorded a couple of assists. His solo finish came against Newcastle United a few weeks ago, and it proved to be the goal that handed Chelsea a much-needed victory.
