Barcelona set their sights on Eden Hazard

Barcelona set their sights on Eden Hazard

Manu de Juan of AS recently reported the former Lille man is on a shortlist of players who could replace Cristiano Ronaldo if he were to move to Juventus.

Olivier Giroud speaks glowingly of Kylian Mbappe and Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard before France and Belgium lock horns in their World Cup semifinal.

There is no denying that Eden Hazard is one of the best players in the world and has been consistently performing for club and country on a regular basis.

And when asked about the prospect of joining the 13-times European champions, Hazard said: "I think Real Madrid is everyone's dream".

Although Hazard did remain tight-lipped when the subject of Real Madrid was mentioned insisting that he will have to see after the World Cup.

"Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey (of Madrid) is unique, but the blue sweater (of Chelsea) suits me well, so it does not bother me if I stay".

Hazard has talked up his admiration for Zidane over the years, going so far as to say it "would be a dream" to play under the Federation Internationale de Football Association 1998 World Cup victor, per RTL (h/t Sky Sports News).

Handed the armband by Roberto Martinez despite Vincent Kompany's return from injury, the Spaniard has drawn out Hazard's leadership qualities.

With six goals so far at the World Cup, Kane looks a dead cert to take home a golden boot, and after over 100 Premier League goals in just five seasons, he is said to be an "excellent replacement".

"Yes of course. Ballon d'Or is of course tied into how many goals you score".

So, it will not be surprising if Hazard wishes to leave the club in this summer transfer window.
