Eden Hazard, a former Chelsea star, is due to return to football later this month, but in an unlikely scenario amid reports of a return to Stamford Bridge. It comes four years after the Belgian winger departed Chelsea for Real Madrid for a fee close to £100 million.

Hazard had several standout seasons with Chelsea, cementing himself as one of the finest in the Premier League and the larger footballing globe. 110 goals and 92 assists highlighted his 352 games with West Ham United, where he won six trophies.

His impact piqued Real Madrid’s interest, and he ended up making the big-money move to try to improve their attacking options. Only 16 La Liga appearances were made in his first season, which was the second most in his four-year career.

Hazard’s injuries and lack of fitness became a major issue for him, as he missed games on a regular basis and failed to regain his best form from previous seasons.

There was a choice to be made on the 32-year-old, who was released on a free transfer and became a free agent this summer.

There have been rumors of a probable retirement as well as a move elsewhere, with Chelsea mentioned as a prospective destination. At this point, no decision on his long-term future has been taken, but there is still some action on the football front and for a good cause.

Hazard will play for the Variety Club de France in a charity match later this month at the Stade de L’Epopee in Calais, according to L’Equipe. The club was created with the intention of raising funds for charity, and it frequently hosts up to 40 matches per year.

VCF was created in 1971 and brings together some of the finest football players. Every year, they compete in approximately 40 charity games against other teams from throughout the world.

Didier Deschamps, Laurent Blanc, Robert Pirès, and Christian Karembeu will be among Hazard’s teammates. He’ll also be joined on the field by former Lille teammates Mathieu Debuchy and Yohan Cabaye.
