The La Liga side confirmed the transfer on June 7 for a fee that could reportedly rise to £124 million (€140m), and bet365 offer 12/1 (13.0) that the Belgian scores 25 or more league goals next season.
Only Cristiano Ronaldo has managed to break the 25-goal mark for Los Blancos since 2010 and the Madrid faithful will certainly be hoping Hazard can be the man to get the illustrious club back on the goal trail.
Real could only muster 63 La Liga strikes last season, their fewest in a single campaign since 1999-2000, and will welcome their new signing’s potency in front of goal having scored 110 goals in 352 appearances for the Blues.
Indeed, Hazard scored more goals for Chelsea in 2018-19 than he had in any of his seven seasons at Stamford Bridge – scoring 21 goals in all competitions including two in the Europa League final.
bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “As well as his hatful of assists each season, Hazard consistently reached double figures on the goalscoring front and all the early money has been for him to continue that trend in La Liga.”
He achieved that three times during his tenure with Chelsea and could prove a popular wager, with the goals likely to be shared by Karim Benzema and new signing Luka Jovic, too.
