New Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has reportedly put Chelsea forward Eden Hazard at the top of his wish list, according to the Daily Star.
And the Frenchman is apparently so desperate to land the Belgian, that he will allow Gareth Bale to head back to the Premier League to join Manchester United in a deal worth an estimated £100m (via The Sun).
Zidane replaced Rafa Benitez in the Bernabeu hot seat yesterday after just seven months in charge, and though the former Liverpool manager was a huge fan of the Welshman, Zidane, allegedly, has other ideas.
The Madrid legend previously attempted to convince Hazard to join him in the Spanish capital when he left Lille back in 2012, only for him to choose Chelsea instead.
But he will now do what he can to finally get his hands on the Belgian international by bringing him on board, though he will have to wait for the summer and for the cheque from Bale’s sale to clear first.
