ZIDANE MAKING EYES AT HAZARD
It’s starting to feel inevitable that Eden Hazard will end up at Real Madrid (unless, perhaps Jose Mourinho ends up there first), with -Real legend and reserve team coach Zinedine Zidane declaring his love for the Belgian once again.
“After Messi and Ronaldo, Hazard is my favourite player,” said Zidane.
“I love watching him because he is a player who creates things and it is often spectacular to see him play. Do I see him going to Real Madrid ? Ask someone else. I love the player and that’s all.”
MAN UNITED MOVE FOR FEGHOULI
Obviously Ronaldo is still on his way, but Valencia winger Sofiane Feghouli could sign a January pre-contract agreement with Manchester United, according to Corriere dello Sport. What an Italian newspaper would know about an Algerian player at a Spanish club moving to England is a mystery, but let’s suspend disbelief for a second.
Feghouli is a 25-year-old winger who has scored one goal and registered no assists so far this season, so excuse us if we don’t see the massive rush for his signature – even if he is available on a free. Tottenham and Inter Milan are said to also be interested.
