The younger brother scored a brace in an impressive performance for Belgium against Switzerland – but is a return to Chelsea possible?



Eden Hazard isn't the sole football prodigy in his family, after his younger brother Thorgan scored two goals for Belgium in their recent Nations League loss to Switzerland in early November.

Thorgan is only two years younger than his brother and is also deployed in an attacking midfield and winger role, and is a strong prospect for his Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.

What's more interesting about Thorgan, however, is the fact that he followed his older brother to Chelsea in 2012 before making a permanent move to Germany, and what had Blues fans buzzing recently is whether Thorgan could yet return to Stamford Bridge in the future.

Hazard is a Belgian midfielder who plays for Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, and is the younger brother of Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Like his older brother, the younger Hazard plays in an attacking midfielder and winger for both club and country.

The 25-year-old followed in his older sibling's footsteps in starting his youth career progressing through the ranks at Belgian sides Royal Stade Brainois and Tubize, before signing his first professional contract after graduating from the Lens academy in France.

Hazard's parents thought that a move to France from Belgium would further his football career and accepted the offer, emulating the path of Eden – who signed a professional contract with Lille, who are the main rivals of Lens.
During Hazard's time at Lens, he came up alongside established players such as Raphael Varane and Geoffrey Kondogbia in the side that that won the Ligue 2 title in the 2008-09 season.
