Real Madrid Prepared To Offload Eden Hazard For €50M



Real Madrid are willing to sell Eden Hazard at the end of the season, just two years on from his high-profile switch from Chelsea.

The 30-year-old’s stint at the Santiago Bernabeu has been ravaged by injury, with there being massive doubts over his fitness and longevity within the club.
As per a report by ABC Spain via Madrid Xtra, the Spanish giants are prepared to let go of the Belgian this summer for an estimated fee of €50 million [£43.4 million].

The report further states that the 13-time Champions League winners are ‘fed up’ of the lack of professionalism Hazard has shown since arriving to the club.

Hazard’s reaction to his side crashing out of the Champions League to his former side Chelsea on Wednesday caused uproar among the Spanish media, with cameras spotting the forward embracing his ex-teammates after the full-time whistle blew.

The two-time Premier League winner took to Instagram on Thursday, issuing an apology to the Madrid fanbase for his reaction following the 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the second-leg of the semi-final.

Since completing a dream move to Madrid in 2019, Hazard has bagged four goals and seven assists in 40 appearances across all competitions for the Galacticos, who signed the winger for a club-record fee of £130 million after years of speculation.

Hazard was linked with a return to west London in February, with there being reports confirming that the La Liga leaders believed that their star man may have been struggling with mental-health issues after being haunted by a storm of injuries.

After a disappointing two-year spell in Spain, it has become very likely owing to Hazard’s struggles on and off the pitch that Madrid could well and truly get rid of the Belgian this summer.

Police Arrest Driver Who Knocked Down Woman And Dumped Her In A Bush To Die



A driver who knocked down a 27-year-old teacher of De Youngsters School at Adenta with his vehicle and abandoned her to die in a bush at Abokobi has been arrested by the police.

The incident happened at the Adentan-Dodowa traffic intersection at about 7 p.m. on June 7, 2021.

The suspect, Emeka Adams, 42, was arrested nine days after he had allegedly knocked down the teacher with a Hyundai Sonata Saloon vehicle with registration number GB 2126-20.

The unlicensed driver has since been charged with murder.

Confirming the arrest, the Public Relations Officer of the Greater Accra Regional Police Command, DSP Mrs Effia Tenge, said after knocking down the teacher, the suspect picked her up under the pretext of taking her to a health facility for treatment.

However, she said police investigations showed that the suspect allegedly abandoned the teacher in a bush at Abokobi, instead of taking her to the hospital.

The body of the victim, she said, was later found in the bush at Abokobi and the police were informed. The police retrieved the body and conveyed it to the Police Hospital Morgue for autopsy and preservation.

Police intelligence, she said, led to the arrest of Adams last Wednesday and the vehicle was also found in his possession.
