Hazard tells reporter “I’m bulking bro” in response to weight-gain questions

The Belgian reportedly arrived at the Bernabeu 7kg overweight.

Eden Hazard gave a reporter this morning an emphatic response during a press conference when hounded with questions over his apparent weight gain, before storming out of the press room: “I’m bulking bro”.

While it is clear that the Belgian has gained some weight, it is unclear whether he really is “bulking” or has indeed thrown caution to the wind dietary-wise this off-season.

The Madrid faithful will hope their marquee signing can be in the best shape possible to deliver trophies back to the Bernabeu, with the 2017-18 season proving fruitless after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. Real Madrid’s all-time top goalscorer is noted for maintaining a robust body shape season-after-season.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that after prematurely exiting the press room, Hazard entered his car and sped off to the McDonald’s just across the street.
