Eden Hazard Determined To Join Real Madrid Following Zidane Return

Eden Hazard Determined To Join Real Madrid Following Zidane Return

Hazard is one of those touted as a potential incoming having come close to a switch to the La Liga giants last summer.

He is said to idolise Zidane, who was tipped to replace the under-pressure Sarri at Chelsea before taking over for a second spell as Real boss.

And the former Venezuela global reckons Paris Saint-Germain sensation Kylian Mbappe would be a much better option than Eden Hazard.

"I never said that I would or would not like to [return to coach Madrid.] I think it's flawless, for me it's ideal".

With the club in a state of disarray after being eliminated from the Copa del Rey and the UEFA Champions League competitions in one week, Zidane's first task as Real's latest manager was contacting the club's longest-serving player and captain, Ramos.

However, Chelsea FC legend Drogba has insisted that he would love to see Hazard stay at Stamford Bridge and doesn't see why the Belgian playmaker would have to leave.

"I think it's flawless because of the fantastic things he has done in the past few years".

"And the reason I can say no to Eden Hazard is because I've got this".

"If I'm Real Madrid I want to attract attention, I want to attract marketing, I want to cover that [Cristiano] Ronaldo hole".

But he believes Tottenham's Harry Kane would be a valuable addition to the Real side.

Do you have a life-changing story you would like us to publish? "I wish the club all the best".

"If Mbappe was priority one, priority 1a is this guy [Harry Kane]". I did not speak to Eden about Zidane.

"I don't know whether he leaves Spurs or not but if I was in Zidane's head, this is what I would go after".
