Hazard moved to Real Madrid in 2019 for a fee of £ 103.5million, but was unable to show his true form in the Spanish capital due to injuries.
Zidane has admitted that Hazard’s injuries at Real Madrid cannot be explained and the club are hopeful that they can return to play soon.
“Something’s going on,” Zidane replied when asked about Hazard at Monday’s press conference.
“He’s never been injured in his career and it’s new to him. I can’t explain more.
“We all want to help him. I hope he will be with us soon.”
Eden Hazard’s hot fate at Real Madrid
Since joining Real Madrid, however, Hazard has already missed 54 games and is counting due to a combination of short and long term injuries.
His longest stint on the sidelines came last season, when he suffered a broken foot in December 2019 and missed more than two months of action.
His poor injury record has seen him struggle for any pace on the pitch, as he has only managed to score four times for the club in 36 games in all competitions.
The Belgian arrived with a lot of hype as fans saw him as a player capable of replacing Cristiano Ronaldo on the left flank. Real Madrid have lacked flair and goals this season and a fit Hazard could well have helped.
Hazard is already 30 years old and he doesn’t have too many peak years left. His contract with Real Madrid ends in 2024 and they hope he can return soon and be the player everyone expected when they signed him.
Los Blancos have a crucial summer transfer window ahead, so it remains to be seen whether the club will truly back him or offload him for new signings.
