Real Madrid could offer Eden Hazard to Lille in shock swap transfer for Jonathan David after Chelsea icon's LaLiga hell

EDEN HAZARD could be offered a shock return to Lille in January by Real Madrid as part of a transfer swap with Jonathan David.

Belgian attacker Hazard joined the Spanish giants in 2019 for a bumper £89million from Chelsea but has failed to make an impact at the Bernabeu.

The 30-year-old, who has failed to score in 15 appearances this term, shot to stardom at LIlle before his breakthrough switch to Stamford Bridge back in 2012.

The French club’s president Olivier Letang opened the door earlier this month to Hazard making a return to the club, saying: “A return of Hazard to Lille? It is not impossible to see it here.

“I go to Spain if necessary. It may seem impossible.

"Obviously, Hazard is an incredible player with a lot of quality.

"Right now, he is a Real Madrid player and is under contract with Real Madrid every day."

Now Marca have reported that Los Blancos are chasing Lille’s 21-year-old's star David.

The Canadian international has been linked with them for several months following his stunning form.

He has scored 13 goals in Ligue 1 this term – more than both Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi – and his agent has confirmed this will be his final campaign at the club.

Nick Mavromaras said: “For us, the goal is to finish the season with Lille, but it will be his last season there for various reasons. I think the Premier League is a great option for him.

“I think he also likes Spain a lot, because he likes the feeling of the ball. He's a very technical player.”

And that could open the door to a stunning swap deal between Madrid and Lille involving Hazard.
