Eden Hazard appears to be enjoying his life away from the sport after he announced his retirement from professional football earlier this month.
Hazard spent four frustrating years at Real Madrid before his contract was mutually terminated despite having a year left on the five-year contract he signed when he joined in 2019.
After sitting throughout the summer transfer window rejecting multiple offers, including from Major League Soccer and the Saudi Pro League, he announced his professional retirement.

“It [life] is perfect. Enjoy life, enjoy family, enjoy the kids. I can do what I want. It's a perfect life. At the moment, I don’t miss playing football, it’s good, let’s see in a few months,” he told CBS Sports.
Some fans are still optimistic that the former Chelsea star will reverse his decision to retire for one last dance, possibly at Stamford Bridge.
