Spanish media outlet Marca has accused Chelsea of robbing Spanish side Real Madrid in 2019.

Marca claim Chelsea robbed Real Madrid by selling Eden Hazard to Spanish side for €160million and using the funds to build a squad that would go on to knock Real Madrid out of the Champions League, less than two years after Hazard made the move to Spain.

According to Marca, Hazard’s transfer from Chelsea to Real Madrid is the biggest robbery of the century.

Following Hazard’s exit to Real Madrid, Chelsea signed Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Edouard Mendy and they all played key roles in knocking Real Madrid out of the Champions League.

Since joining Real Madrid, Hazard has had 11 injuries and missed 66 games for the Spanish side. In the 40 games he has played for Real Madrid, he has contributed just four goals and seven assists.
