Hazard: Wanted man
Real Madrid ambassador Zinedine Zidane has hinted that the club may make a move for Lille's Eden Hazard.
The teenage midfielder has earned rave reviews this season, with a number of Europe's top clubs monitoring his situation in France.
At just 19 years of age he has already become a mainstay in the Lille side and has earned 17 caps for Belgium.
His precocious talent was never going to go unnoticed for long and his list of admirers continues to grow by the week.
Spanish giants Real are just one of those in the queue, and Hazard has already admitted that he would welcome a switch to Santiago Bernabeu.
Real remain tight-lipped for now regarding their intentions for the immediate future, but Zidane admits they would be foolish to overlook a player of such obvious potential.
"What he is doing is extraordinary for his club," the former France international told Canal+.
"I have spoken about him in Madrid, but not to Jose Mourinho. Anyway, he will know."
Asked if a potential move could take place, Zidane replied: "It may."
