Eden Hazard has admitted to feeling frustrated at Real Madrid since the start of the 2022/23 season.
The Belgian international has struggled with constant injury problems following his arrival in the Spanish capital from Chelsea in 2019.
The 31-year-old has missed 73 games with Los Blancos ahead of the current campaign, and he endured an inconsistent end to the 2021/22 season.
Despite a firm message to Real Madrid fans on his determination to turn his situation around, during their title celebrations in May, little has changed for the Eden Hazard in recent weeks.
After a pair of substitute cameos, he came into Carlo Ancelotti’s starting XI for the final two games before the international break, with a late goal in the 3-0 Champions League win away at Celtic.
However, that is only likely to be a temporary change, and Hazard could ask Ancelotti to consider a transfer away from Madrid in January, when he returns from the World Cup.
“There have been difficult times because I want to play and I don’t play”, he said during an interview with Marca on Belgium duty this week.
“I feel good at Real Madrid, I just want play too much.
“When I play, I play well, but it’s a delicate situation, as I want to play more.”
