Hazard on his way to Madrid..

The Belgian’s contract expires in 2020 and he has been linked with a move to the La Liga gaints for so long now. Zidane wanted to sign him to replace Gareth Bale as the welshman struggled for form, fitness and even for consistency lately. His struggles over the past few years regularly sparked speculation over his long term future.
As the exit talks for one player from the spanish capital began to make rounds in media, for another it was a chance to make his dream move to the Los Blancos.
A summer of uncertainties followed and disagreements between the manager and the Supremo led to the prior one’s departure. The decision directly affected the club as their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo followed Zidane to the exit door. The summer went on and Real Madrid have failed to replace one of the games all time greats.
Eden Hazard insisted Zinedine Zidane’s departure from Real Madrid has not affected his admiration of the club and says he has made a decision on his future.
The Belgian winger has long been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu and his contract at Chelsea expires in 2020.

Zidane left the Spanish giants at the end of last season and was replaced by Julen Lopetegui, whose reign lasted only until October. Former youth team manager Santiago Solari is now in charge of Real and Hazard insists the managerial change is of no concern and he is firm on his decision.

The 28-year-old told RMC, “I have always liked Real Madrid as a club, with or without Zidane. At the end of this year I have 1 year left on my Chelsea contract. We will see, it’ll be up to me to make the decision.”

Hazard has been frequently linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge and is tipped to fill Cristiano Ronaldo’s shoes in Madrid. The Belgian star has not shied away from the speculation, saying two months ago that it has been his dream since childhood to play for the blancos.

After a poor run at the start of the campaign saw Lopetegui lose his job, Madrid have struggled to recover early under Solari but now look pretty balanced. They have jumped up to third in the La liga table just two points behind city rivals Atletico and eight behind the Blaugrana.

Chelsea meanwhile are struggling to reflect their early season form but stay in the top four contention.

With Real Madrid’s latest policy of recruiting young players and developing them for future, at 28, this appears to be the last chance for Hazard to make his dream move to the record European champions.
