Breaking News: Chelsea legend Eden Hazard is now set for return to football

Hazard has been a free agent ever since leaving Real Madrid, who ripped up his contract in June.

According to L’Equipe, however, the winger will take to the pitch for a good cause.

The former Belgium international will play for the Varietes Club de France on October 18 at the Stade de L’Epopee in Calais.

The VCF was formed in 1971 and puts together some of the all-time best players who compete in about 40 charity matches per year against various different teams.

Hazard will be joining this year to team up with World Cup winners, like Laurent Blanc and France manager Didier Deschamps.

The 32-year-old will also be joined by former Lille team-mates Mathieu Debuchy and Yohan Cabaye.

The Belgian superstar has seen his career take a nosedive ever since leaving Chelsea for Real in 2019.

The forward took the Premier League by storm during his seven-year stint at Stamford Bridge where he scored 110 goals and bagged 92 assists in 352 appearances.

After leading the Blues to two Premier League titles, two Europa League trophies, the 2018 FA Cup and the 2015 League Cup, Hazard moved to Santiago Bernabeu following a £130million deal.

However, the ex-Lille star’s dream move turned into a nightmare as he was marred by injury and only managed a mere seven goals and 12 assists in 76 appearances throughout his four-year stint in Madrid.

That led to Los Blancos’ chiefs ripping up his £400,00-a-week contract.

Hazard attracted some interest during the summer transfer window, with the likes of Marseille and his former club Lille knocking on his door but he turned them both down.
