Eden Hazard celebrates goal against West Brom

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard will only join Real Madrid next summer if Zinedine Zidane remains in the Santiago Bernabeu.

The future of the Frenchman has been in serious question following Real’s abysmal performances in games this season. The Los Blancos are currently trailing Barcelona by 16 points and are some way of the from that can see them launch a comeback or march past Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.

The defending champions of the Champions League have their backs against the wall when they face PSG in the round of 16 stage, as their form suggests they are second best to a prolific attack manned by Neymar, Edison Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.

All these threaten the job of Zidane despite his efforts in the last two years he’s been in charge of the club as manager.

According to Don Balon, quaoted by the Daily Star, Hazard, a long term target for Real, has decided not to move to Real if Zidane leaves his position in the summer.
