Transfer balls: Real Madrid ‘steal’ Chelsea’s Eden Hazard
Real Madrid have recommenced their tapping up for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. Real coach Zinedine Zidane tells media:
“Do I see him going to Real Madrid ? Ask someone else. I love the player and that’s all.”
The Mirror says Zidane “has stepped up Real Madrid’s bid to crowbar yet another player out of the Premier League”.
Crowbar? Is the paper’s Darren Lewis deluded? Crowbar suggests a robbery, an attempt to nick the prize. No Premier League club can rival Real Madrid or Barcelona for glamour. They are European football’s ultimate clubs. Real don’t need a crowbar; they only need to beckon.
Zidane is telling Hazard he would be welcome at the mighty Real. A bid is surely inevitable. Zidane adds:
“After Messi and Ronaldo, Hazard is my favourite player. I love watching him because he is a player who creates things and it is often spectacular to see him play.”
He previously said:
“Obviously, there is Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, both of whom are spectacular, but I like Eden Hazard more. I like everything he does on the field. I like his behaviour, his decisiveness and love to see his progress every year.”
