Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has admitted that he would love to add Chelsea's Eden Hazard to his squad at the Bernabeu, calling him a 'very, very good player' as speculation continues to circulate about the Belgian's Chelsea future.
Hazard has admitted that he is loath to leave Stamford Bridge on a sour note after his disastrous 2015/16 season, but Real are still likely to be on the lookout for an attacking midfielder after appearing to miss out on Paul Pogba.
Speaking about the Blues star, Zidane admitted: “He is a very, very good player. Obviously all clubs want the best players but he is a Chelsea player.”
Hazard admitted last week that his 2015/16 season was a poor one, appearing to rule out a move this summer. He said: “I want to be the best, like I was two seasons ago. I said – after the season like this - I wanted to stay at Chelsea because I didn’t want to finish like this.
"I played a very bad season. We didn’t start the season well because of injuries and everything seemed to go against Chelsea. It wasn’t easy and wasn’t a good season. We want to forget it."
Meanwhile, Antonio Conte has hinted at a change in role for the 25-year-old, saying: "I like him in this position, like a forward, and he can be a good solution for us - also playing as a winger. To play as a second forward he must improve his shape but he is working and he knows his shape in the same way as the other players."
