Eden Hazard could see out his current Real Madrid contract despite limited game time at the Santiago Bernabeu, according to his younger brother Kylian.
Kylian, 26, who plays his club football in the Belgian second division on loan from Cercle Brugge, claims his brother may be going through a rough patch, but does not intend to secure a move back to the Premier League.
He also states he and his family are quite content to remain in Spain and are enjoying life in the Spanish capital.

‘He is fine where he is, his family feels good there. He has a contract until 2024 and I think he will wait until then’, he told HLN.
‘Maybe he’s playing a little less now and the team is functioning without him, but everyone knows how good he is.’
Hazard has endured a frustrating first three seasons in Spain with injuries and a drop in form reducing his impact with Carlos Ancelotti’s side.
He has started just seven matches for the Galacticos in LaLiga this season, and featured 10 times off the bench.
Ancelotti has lost faith in the Belgium international, preferring young Brazilian Vinicius Junior ahead of him.
Hazard has no league goals to his name this season, with three in 2020/21, and he has not failed to score in league action in a season since 2008.

The 31-year-old is earning a hefty £416,000 per week, with the Spanish club keen to offload him in a bid to free up their wage bill.
Newcastle have previously been keen to sign the former Chelsea star, according to El Nacional.
The Magpies tabled a £33million (€40million) offer and another £8.3million (€10million) in ‘variables’ to secure Hazard from Madrid in January, but their advances were rebuffed by the player himself.
