Chelsea FC’s hopes of keeping Eden Hazard beyond the summer transfer window have been boosted by Zinedine Zidane’s exit at Real Madrid, according to reports in the British media.

The Evening Standard is reporting that Zidane had been pushing the Real Madrid board to make a bid to try and bring Hazard to the Bernabeu this summer, but that was before the Frenchman stood down as manager following their Champions League triumph over Liverpool FC.

Hazard has long been linked with a move away from Chelsea FC and Real Madrid has regularly been touted as one of the most likely destinations for the Belgian playmaker.

According to the same report, the top chiefs at Real Madrid want Isco and Marco Asensio to feature regularly in the coming seasons, and that would leave little space for Hazard in the side.

It means that signing Hazard has now moved down Real Madrid’s priority list this summer, especially as Chelsea FC would be likely to demand a fee of at least £100m for his signature, according to the same article.

Hazard helped Chelsea FC to end the season on a positive note by beating Manchester United 1-0 in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month.
