Jose Mourinho wants a reunion with former Chelsea star Eden Hazard – and it could help his current side Real Madrid.
The Portuguese boss will take on the ninth team of his managerial career when he heads to Roma for the 2021/22 season.
Being announced days after receiving the sack from Tottenham, the 58-year-old is charged with getting the Serie A back to European football after finishing in their worst position for nine seasons.
And Spanish outlet Deportes Cuatro have reported that Mourinho is planning to use a former star of his at Chelsea to get them going.
Eden Hazard, who helped the manager win the 2015/16 Premier League title in the Roma boss’ second stint at the Blues, has been struggling at Real Madrid with injury.
It has seen the Belgian, with only five goals in 43 games since his 2019 arrival at the Bernabeu, get linked with a move away.
And the report states that Mourinho’s new side would be prepared to offer a loan move for the forward where they pay his wages.
This would help Madrid solve a problem as they are looking to get him off the wage bill, even willing to sell Hazard on.
Chelsea’s former forward has been hit with injury since his arrival in Spain – but fans turned on him following footage from the Champions League semi-final loss to his former side.
The 30-year-old was filmed laughing with Kurt Zouma following the 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge, confirming a 3-1 defeat for Madrid on aggregate.
El Chiringuito host Josep Pedrerol laid into the Belgian, saying: “Madrid are eliminated, and look at Hazard. Two years taking the p**** out of Madrid fans. Two years overweight.
“A lot of people say he is the new Bale. Madrid have spent years waiting for him, negotiating for him, spent £100m on him.
“They’ve just been eliminated, and it is possible for him to find something funny?
“After Zidane gave him the opportunity to play when he didn’t deserve it? He laughs at everyone?”
