Real Madrid's French coach Zinedine Zidane stands on the sideline during the Spanish league football match between Getafe CF and Real Madrid CF at the Col. Alfonso Perez stadium in Getafe on April 25, 2019. Eden Hazard has been heavily tipped to move to the Santiago Bernabeu, with a number of other big names also being linked in the media, including Brazilian superstar Neymar.
Hazard (28) has also been open about his desire to play for Real during his career, describing it as "my dream since I was a kid". [But] I do not have full power [over transfers]. I'm not even the boss in my own home!
He said: "The idea is to have more strength in attack next year, we will see what happens though". Whether he plays or doesn't play. he's had playing time under me. This has led many to assume that Gareth Bale does not have a future at the club.
You can see that Bale is happy.
"He is a player in our squad and will play between now and end of season".
The end of the footballing season is usually the time when several teams reveal their uniforms for the upcoming campaign. A string of poor performances saw him dropped to the bench and if this recent allegation were to be true, one may expect the Belgian to be part of the summer overhaul at the club.
Madrid will certainly miss the Frenchman, who has scored their last eight goals in La Liga, although it is not just them who will be without their star man up front.
Asked about Neymar's comments and if they could play together at Real, Zidane trod a fine line between backing up the comments and keeping his comments as general as he could.
