Zidane unsure on Hazard deal
Zinedine Zidane has yet to decide whether or not to pursue a deal to take Chelsea star Eden Hazard to Real Madrid in the summer.
Zidane is back in charge at the Bernabeu and is planning a huge summer rebuild after Los Blancos went off the rails during his short time away from the club, which means they will finish the season without silverware.
The Frenchman will be handed a huge transfer budget, but it is still unclear whether he will spend a large portion of it trying to lure Belgium international Hazard away from Stamford Bridge.
Hazard has always been a top target for Zidane, but he does have plenty of other options and is said to be weighing them all up before deciding who to move for when the transfer window re-opens.
The likes of Liverpool forward Sadio Mane and Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe are also targets and his budget will not be big enough to land all three so something will have to give.
Despite the prospect of a transfer embargo, it has been suggested Chelsea could sell in the summer as they are scared of Hazard running down his contract and leaving on a free in 2020.
