Hazard was Real’s most high-profile signing in a busy summer for the 13-time European champions, who spent almost £300m on new recruits.

The former Blue forward scored once in seven pre-season matches for Los Blancos.

Real are also without fellow winger Marco Asensio for the start of the new campaign due to a serious knee injury, while Dani Carvajal is suspended.
