To turn up for pre-season slightly out of condition once, can be considered unfortunate, do it twice and questions will definitely be asked.

's all-time record signing Eden Hazard appeared to be carrying extra weight in some of the images from Belgium's training camp during the international break.

When Roberto Martinez didn't pick the former Chelsea forward for a single game because he felt he was not match fit, questions were raised in Madrid as to why he was even there.

Shouldn't he have been getting into tip-top condition at the club's Valdebebas training ground under the watchful eye of 's fitness coach Gregory Dupont?

Concerns over the full recovery of the ankle he had operated last January increased the feeling that he has put country over club when it's the club he owes a big debt to.

He has very little credit in the bank after a first season which produced one goal. The bad luck with injury limited his games but the return is still a poor one.

His price was originally reported as 100m euros in Spain but there have been subsequent suggestions that it is closer to 130m and could rise to 160m. A bad second season and this would be an embarrassment on the scale of Ousmane Dembele at Barcelona.
