1. England is too physical
For all of Eden Hazard’s God-given gifts, he certainly isn’t an imposing figure on the pitch. At some point, he’ll want to leave England to preserve his body.
His diminutive stature just doesn’t allow his body to hold up against the constant punishment English defenders dish out. A move to Spain could easily give him another season or two on the prime of his career.
While Hazard has enjoyed a pretty healthy 2016-17, let’s not forget that he’s missed significant time in other years due to injury. Moving to La Liga should allow him to stay on the field more often.
At some point, Hazard is going to get sick and tired of being hacked to the ground by Premier League defenders. I’m betting a big offer from Real Madrid this summer could provide him his tipping point. Moving to Spain would allow him a lot more space to operate.
