Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has made Chelsea forward Eden Hazard his number one target for next summer.
According to Don Balon, Madrid president Florentino Perez is coveting the likes of Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Juventus’s Paulo Dybala, while Zidane wants the Belgian to partner Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo up front.
The Frenchman is concerned by the form of Gareth Bale and has identified Chelsea star, Hazard as the ideal replacement for the Wales international.
Hazard had earlier revealed he won’t be joining any other club apart from Lillie, adding that it would only be at the end of his career.
Hazard has been a long term target for Paris Saint Germain before they eventually signed Brazilian star Neymar and Monaco’s wonder-kid Kylian Mbappe.
