Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane wants to sign Hazard as a possible replacement for Gareth Bale who is expected to exit the Bernabeu during the summer. But after making significant progress Madrid seem to have halted their process.
Eden Hazard is reportedly very keen to join Real Madrid and play under Zinedine Zidane but the current slow pace of the transfer has caused the Belgian International to believe that the Los Blancos is be weighing their other options.
Madrid are said to be also interested in signing Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi and are keeping an eye on Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Liverpool’s Mo Salah. In such a scenario, Hazard seems to be a bit worried that the deal might collapse in the coming months if Madrid find a better option.
A couple of months ago it was reported that Man United manager Jose Mourinho had shown an interest in signing the Belgian International and now it seems that Hazard is using the Old Trafford outfit as a pawn to fast-track his move to Real Madrid.
