Zinedine Zidane urges Real Madrid president not to miss golden opportunity to seal transfer of Chelsea star

Posted by

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is reportedly urging club president Florentino Perez not to miss out on the transfer of Chelsea star Eden Hazard next summer.

According to Don Balon, there could be a real opportunity for Real to pounce for Hazard, who wants out of Stamford Bridge to move to Madrid next year.

The Belgium international is one of the best players in the world on his day and would fit in nicely among the other Galacticos currently on the books at the Bernabeu.

In fact, Hazard could even prove instrumental in replacing one or two of them, with some doubts over the futures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in that attacking midfield position.

The Sun have linked Bale as a target for Manchester United, while AS reported earlier this season that Ronaldo was planning on leaving next summer amid a disagreement over a new contract.

Don Balon claim that Perez would rather bring Neymar to Madrid, but that Hazard could be a decent alternative if that ambitious deal doesn’t work out.

Zidane is desperate for the 26-year-old to come in and Don Balon claim he believes next summer may be the club’s best chance to do it.

As well as Hazard, the Sun recently reported that Chelsea run a growing risk of losing goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Los Blancos as he stalls over signing a new contract.
