REPORTS: Arsenal’s Miss Out On £30m Eden Hazard

By on October 9, 2011

It appears that Arsenal may well have missed out on long-term target, Eden Hazard, after the starlet looks set to join Real Madrid.

The Belgian, according to reports, will join Spanish giants Real Madrid having signed a pre-contract agreement with Jose Mourinho’s side ahead of a £30m move. The news will be a devastating blow to Arsenal who have been tracking Hazard for years and it’s been suggested Arsene Wenger was ready to make a January move in order to help get Arsenal’s season back on track following a disappointing start.

Madrid are looking to wrestle the European dominance away from fierce rivals Barcelona this year after several years in the shadow of the Catalans, and it will be hoped that Hazard can be a large part of their glamorous attacking options. Zinedine Zidane, Real’s Director of Football and former player, is said to have played a large part in constructing the deal say Gazzetta dello Sport, with the Frenchman reportedly telling Hazard personally that his future should lie in Madrid.

      Nothing Ramsey has done this season has shown he is anywhere near Arsenal quality, everyone of our attacks has broken down at him and he has been spared criticism because he still has a good shot and scores every now and then. He has the potential but its going to be at least another year or so for him if he is to make it at all.
      But yea, all the others especially Ox and Wilshire are looking really special (individually at least) Arsenal probably should sign another attacker in January but they will have to have the ability to play in multiple positions which is hard to find and hazard is one of the few out there who fit the bill.
      That said, I dont think Wenger, Gazidis or the Arsenal board have the balls to take the risk on any player worth more than £15m and even if they did, they wouldnt pay the wages a fee greater than that goes with.

    He ain’t Pele and he ain’t Messi. Heck, he’s not even Christiano. Arsenal will survive .

    I don’t blame him for going to Madrid. He said last year he wanted to go to Spain. I would love to see him in an Arsenal shirt but with the way things are going I doubt we will attract any big stars to the club. If Usmonov was the owner I could see a bright future but with silent Stan in charge (who knows f all about football) the future looks bleak with maybe a best of 4th place. Pathetic really when you consider all we needed over the last few seasons were 2 quality defenders to back Verminator and Sagna. We had the goal keeper crisis which Wenger never sorted out until Szczesny came of age and because of that we haven’t won a cup in 6 years. I think Robin will be off and Walcott, but to be honest Walcott can go as we have a better replacement in Oxlade-Chamberlain and maybe a swap deal with Tevez for Robin. I’m just still concerned about the defence. “In Wenger I no longer trust!”

    Serves wenger and the board right, their shrewdness in transfer dealings had caused arsenal a lot of heartache. I think Ardenal doomsday is near.

      He tried hard to sign for Arsenal but coach Wenger is not serious about it, this man is a great problem for we the fan, he is not serious about anything in Arsenal and with these he decided to sell the best players in Arsenal team and bring in an armature kind of player, i think which am very sure of what am saying this man need to be sacked, he is not seriou

    Don’t believe what you read. If one player can change Arsenal it is not Eden Hazard the over rated and unproven.
    Changing managers and spending money can’t buy you trophy.look Liverpool and Totenham who had spent much more than Arsenal but still trailing behind. Arsenal’s football philosoph make the club a trade mark all over the world with people who appreciate and enjoy the beautiful game. Only one team win trophy but the winner is not always the better footballing team. We have to admit Arsenal now is not performing well at the moment and in transition with lots of promising youngesters and injury crisis. one bad season out of 15 is not bad as there are teams like Totenham who is 15 seasons out of 15 behind Arsenal but spending double the amount.

    Sounds like a load of bollox. He would be in direct competition with Kaka and Ozil. I suppose he could compete with Divaldo for a wing berth.

    Absolutely nothing is concrete in football any more. What I can see is Wenger and Arsenal is rebuilding Again. Expect more 19 year olds!

    Arsenal are a very poor team and this is a hugely promising young player who will become a world class talent. He would destroy everything by going to Arsenal. Arsenal simply unattractive to any good player hence why they sign garbage like Arteta and that lanky kraut. Very poor indeed.

    Why on earth would a “sane” Hazard join Arsenal today after seeing Cesc, Nasri, Clichy etc fleeing the sinking ship? Today, even skipper Robin van Versie is ducking a new contract from Arsenal. The other fearsome issue is that Arsene Wenger is still in charge. More seriously, Hazard knows Wenger wants to sign him so he’s resold at a profit for Arsenal. So why not signing for a big, non-selling club directly?

    Why would he move to us.. Seriously ask yourself would you go to Arsenal or Madrid if you didnt support either.
