Zinedine Zidane is pushing Real Madrid to tie up the acquisition of Eden Hazard from Chelsea this summer, according to Standard Sport.
Hazard to Real Madrid has looked to be somewhat of a foregone conclusion for some time now, even if we are holding onto the feint hope we have of him sticking around.
If his dream is to play for Los Blancos at the Santiago Bernabeu, under childhood hero Zidane, than who are we to stand in his way – especially after all he’s done for us.
Real Madrid do have to cough up the cash though, or face the possibility of missing out on him. Standard Sport believe that Zidane has urged Florentino Perez to do it.
Standard Sport’s report certainly makes it seem like Hazard is Zidane’s number one target, which would make perfect sense as the Frenchman looks to rebuild his side.
Hazard is one of the best players on the planet and is certainly someone you could build a team around. He’s driven us to victory time and time again, and could do the same in Madrid.
The report claims that Real Madrid will accelerate with their interest after the Europa League final, meaning these are nervous weeks that lie in wait for Chelsea fans.
