Marina Granovskaia's £130m Chelsea transfer masterstroke proven again amid Eden Hazard update

Eden Hazard left Chelsea in the summer of 2019, but his move to Santiago Bernabeu has not gone as planned, with the Belgian star suffering a string of injuries.

Since Marina Granovskaia sold Hazard in 2019, he has missed 57 games, which is more than he has played in a Madrid shirt (51).

Although he has been unlucky with the number of problems he has had, it has been argued that the Chelsea board made a brilliant business decision.

In comparison to his time at Stamford Bridge, the Belgian missed only 18 games due to injury and never missed more than a few minutes at a time.

It could be argued that he was once one of the world's best players, having won the PFA Players' Player of the Year award once and being named to the Team of the Year four times.

Most importantly, Hazard's goals were crucial in the club's two championships and four other major trophies, as he ended up scoring 110 times, 21 of which came in his final season.

Eden Hazard's time at Real Madrid hasn't gone exactly as planned, and he suffered another setback on Thursday night.

Hazard is yet to play against Barcelona in his Madrid career. He has missed the last four meetings and could miss a fifth
