Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been back to his best in recent weeks and this may have attracted the attention of Real Madrid once again. There has been constant speculation over the last few years that the Belgian international will eventually end up at the Santiago Bernabeu.
It would appear that the man himself has refused to rule out the move happening too, even going as far as saying he has ‘admiration’ for Real Madrid in an interview with French TV channel CanalPlus. Any potential move would not take place until summer 2018 at the earliest as he would like to see the season out with Chelsea first.
It could be a busy summer for Real Madrid, as Adrien Rabiot seems to be a big target too. It could be said that the club are currently paying the price for not spending enough money in the summer just gone, and this is part of the reason when Los Blancos find themselves 10 points off the top of La Liga.
It is not just Hazard that admires Real though, as manager Zinedine Zidane has gone on record to say that he admires Eden Hazard too. It is reported that Zidane even recommended that Real Madrid should sign the player way back in 2010 when he was still a Lille player.
The Belgian has a contract with English Premier League side Chelsea until 2020 but that will certainly not stop the speculation from happening. In the interview with CanalPlus, Hazard said:
“For the moment, I want to finish this year. Everyone knows the admiration I have for Real, but for the moment, I’m a Blue. And each year people have said things, and each year I have stayed at my club.”
Stating recently that it would be a dream to work under Zidane, a man that he has admired since he was a young child, a big money move to the Bernabeu could be on the cards next summer.
