Transfer fee of 16.58 billion won, wages of 870,000…’Gambling’ Azhar to retire early
Real Madrid’s ‘bullies’ have finally hung up their boots.
Eden Hazard (Belgium) announced on social media on Tuesday (local time), “It’s time to stop when the time is right. After 16 years and over 700 games, I have decided to end my professional career. I was a lucky player. I had great managers, coaches and teammates. I thank them all and will always miss them,” he said in announcing his retirement.
Azar began his professional career in 2007 with French side LOSC Lille. He moved to Chelsea in the English Premier League in the summer of 2012 based on his performances at Lille. Azar was in his prime. In seven years at Chelsea, he scored 110 goals and provided 92 assists in 352 games. He was also at the peak of his powers with the Belgian national team, alongside the likes of Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) and Thibaut Courtois (Real Madrid).바카라사이트
In the summer of 2019, he moved to Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga. The transfer fee was a whopping 115 million euros (approximately 16.58 billion won).
However, Azar spent more time on the sidelines with injuries than he did on the pitch.
In his four years at Real Madrid, he played just 76 games. Seven goals and 12 assists. In the 2022-2023 season, he played just 331 minutes, and he was still earning €600,000 a week. Real Madrid’s ‘bargain’.
Eventually, Real Madrid terminated his contract. He had one year left on his contract. They paid a penalty and parted ways with him, and he decided to retire.
