REAL MADRID IN TALKS WITH CHELSEA OVER HAZARD MOVE AS ZIDANE RETURNS
Written by thrilliant on March 12, 2019
Real Madrid is reportedly planning a summer deal for Chelsea Star Eden Hazard.
The club is already planning Zinedine Zidane’s first big transfer, after his return was confirmed on Monday.
However Real Madrid made a contact with Chelsea about Hazard, shortly before they announced Zidane would be their new head coach on Monday.
Hazard is a huge admirer of Zidane as a coach and named the French legend as his idol growing up.
Chelsea’s transfer ban could block Hazard from joining Real, as Chelsea would be unable to sign a replacement. However, the club is hopeful the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) will overrule FIFA’s decision to snub a request to freeze the suspension during the appeal process.
The Blues value Hazard at £100million, even though his current deal expires next summer.
Zidane has reportedly been handed a £300m transfer kitty.
