DIMITAR BERBATOV has urged Real Madrid to consider selling Eden Hazard as he is 'yet to prove anything'.

The injury-prone star, 30, has played just 35 games for the Spanish side since he joined from Chelsea in 2019.

Hazard now faces another four to six weeks on the sidelines as he has suffered another muscle injury.

His latest setback is the TENTH separate problem he has picked up since he arrived at the Bernabeu.

Former Manchester United forward Bertbatov has urged Madrid to cut their losses on Hazard.

During an interview with BetFair, he said: "Real Madrid should consider selling Hazard.

"He has had a lot of injuries since he arrived in Spain, and that has prevented him from showing the brilliant football that he played at Chelsea.

"If it was something occasional then it would be a different matter, but the fact is that the player is injured again and again and again, that is a sign that there is another problem that is affecting him."

Hazard made the move to Madrid from Chelsea for a fee that could exceed £150million.

But Bertbatov would not be shocked if he left in the summer following his poor spell of form.

He continued: "Will he be able to regain the form he had and show that the money Real Madrid invested in his was the right decision? Right now, the answer is no.

"It's true that Hazard has only just turned 30 and still has a lot of time to contribute a lot, but this question is one which needs to be asked.

"Hazard has yet to prove anything in Madrid, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he left in the summer."

Berbatov, 40, has also claimed Frank Lampard deserved more time to prove himself at Chelsea.

And he insisted former club United have turned this season into a 'three-horse race'.
