Eden Hazard has flirted with Real Madrid, by saying that he would love to be coached by Zinedine Zidane.
Hazard insisted that he is happy at Chelsea, but the quotes are hardly likely to please supporters or his club.
The Belgian has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain. This is his clearest indication yet as to where his preference lies.
“Zinedine Zidane would be a dream to have as a coach,” Hazard told RTL in his native Belgium.
“He was my idol when I was little, I have a lot of respect for him.
“Of course I don’t know what will happen in my career in the future, but to play under him would be a dream.
“At this time, though, I’m happy at Chelsea. I still have a lot of things to do at Chelsea, and I’m focused on Chelsea.”
