Hazard, 30, joined Real Madrid during the summer of 2019 after making an eye-watering £103.5m switch from Chelsea, as per Transfermarkt.

Since arriving in the Spanish capital, Hazard has struggled to recapture the form which saw him emerge as one of the Premier League’s most talented attackers.

Inconsistent performances and a series of injuries have seen the Belgian forward struggle for game-time.

However, when he has featured, Hazard has manage to score just three times in 32 appearances, in all competitions.

The 30-year-old’s uninspired form has reportedly seen him fall out-of-favour with Zidane who is now questioning whether or not to play him, even when he is available.

According to a recent written report from Spanish outlet AS (via Sports Witness), the situation with Hazard is being compared to Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.

President Florentino Perez is thought to be ‘unconvinced’ by both Hazard and Pogba, despite agreeing to back Zidane and dishing out over £100m 18-months ago for the Belgian.

Nevertheless, there is a growing consensus in Madrid that Los Blancos did not end up with the player they thought they were buying.

Instead, the club’s hierarchy feel Hazard ‘goes missing’ in too many big games which has prompted Zidane to question his future inclusions.

  1. Zidane is too arrogant when it comes to decision making. I don’t appreciate sack a coach from his job whether things going well or not. But this time in case we couldn’t win a single trophy for the club, we must sack Zidane including some some players. He never do favour to Jovic by giving him time but we always criticize Jovic not to prove when he is on the both on and off the pitch. Did he got minutes like Hazard got? The answer is no. So whether he is good or not Zidane prefers him to Vinicius and Jovic. He is willing to be sacked. If we want to go to transfer market he refuses because he wants Pogba, Mbappe and Camavinga. His countrymen. This will not help when he still manage this club.

    1. I want real Madrid to sack zidane because of his selfishness.only France players he wanted Madrid to bring eg,if it is the matter of Sergio Ramos replacement he is only looking for France men
