Eden Hazard has dismissed claims he is "unsettled" at Real Madrid and insisted he is "very happy" to be playing at the LaLiga club.

The 30-year-old has struggled to make an impact the club since signing for them from Chelsea in 2019, with countless injuries holding him back. Hazard was linked with an exit from the club for a long time, but insists he remains fully committed to Madrid.

He told reporters: "It’s not true that I’m not happy at Real Madrid, I’m very happy at the club and you know a player is happy when he is playing and scoring goals. I haven’t played or scored much but that doesn’t affect the affection I have for the club.

"I’m happy in Madrid, I like my life there. The situation got complicated because of Covid, the injuries and all, but a player is happy when he is playing minutes, it’s easier to be happy when you’re scoring."

Pressed further on his current mindset, Hazard added: "You can say what you want, but I am happy there. I know I can do good things there and that’s it.

"When I score goals, when I smile again everyone will say I’m happy, but I’m already happy. It’s just that I can’t play and I can’t score, and that’s what I’m missing."

In three seasons at the club, Hazard has only made 46 appearances, scoring just five goals. However, he has started two of their three games this season, and helped the side earn seven points as they sit atop the LaLiga table.
