EDEN HAZARD is now without a club after Real Madrid ripped up his £400,00-a-week contract.
The Belgian was hoping to see out the final year of his lucrative deal in the Spanish capital.

But Hazard has now departed Real after four injury-laden seasons in search of pastures new.
A statement confirmed: “Real Madrid C. F. and Eden Hazard have reached an agreement by which the player is disassociated from the club as of June 30, 2023.”
Hazard, 32, joined Real in 2018 for an initial £86million after winning the Europa League with Chelsea.
That figure eventually rose to a staggering £125m after further LaLiga and Champions League success at the Bernabeu.
But numerous injuries meant Hazard was barely involved in those triumphs.
He played 76 times in all competitions for Real – just 14 more games than he managed in his first single season at Chelsea.
Indeed, Hazard featured only six times in the league this term.
And some reports suggest he could even retire from the game after a glittering career that peaked at Stamford Bridge.
