Could Thorgan Hazard prove to be a better value signing than brother Eden?


While the ex-Chelsea man’s move to Real Madrid was one of the summer’s biggest transfers, his younger sibling is outperforming him at Dortmund

Given the fanfare which greeted Eden Hazard’s transfer to Real Madrid, you could have been forgiven for forgetting all about his brother Thorgan’s move to Borussia Dortmund a few weeks earlier.

“At last, Hazard” howled the front page of Marca. Diario AS went with “Hazard fever”, while in England several back pages carried quotes from the departing Chelsea talisman suggesting that he was ready “to be the world’s best player in the world’s best team”.

It might have been different had Thorgan Hazard moved to Liverpool, as seemed possible, and linked up with the Champions League winners, or moved back to Chelsea where he and his brother were team-mates for a time. As it was, a move from fifth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach to second-placed Dortmund was mainly met with a shrug and treated as an in-house Bundesliga affair.
