Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has described Chelsea ace, Eden Hazard as a “fantastic player”.
Zidane stated this on Friday ahead of Real Madrid’s La Liga clash against Eibar on Saturday.
Hazard has been on Real Madrid’s radar over the last few months, with Zidane a known admirer.
GIFTALWORLD recalls that Real Madrid contacted Chelsea last month over their bid for Hazard as Zidane returned.
The Spanish giants are eyeing Hazard as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who after nine years, left the Santiago Bernabeu for Juventus in an £88million deal last summer.
Asked about Hazard at a pre-match press conference on Friday, Zidane was quoted by Eurosport as telling reporters: “He is a player I have always rated, as everyone knows.
“He is a player that has played in France, that I have watched a lot and that I know personally.
“There’s nothing new about what I think of him as a player. He’s a fantastic player.”
