Hazard tells Morata he wants Madrid moveJanuary 5, 2018
Eden Hazard has told teammate and former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata of his desire to move to the Santiago Bernabeu, according to Don Balon.
The Belgian winger is seen as a possible replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo with the 32 year old not guaranteed to still be in the Spanish capital at the end of the season.
They report that Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane is a keen admirer of the Chelsea midfielder with the move very possible and Morata believes that it is only a matter of time before the Spanish giants get their man.
However, a move for Hazard to Madrid could see many other players head for the exit door with the likes of Isco and Marco Asensio far from happy.
The two Spaniards began the season on fire for Real, taking their chances in the team with Gareth Bale out injured, but have since been left on the bench during most of Real’s games in the run up to Christmas.
They believe they would get even less time on the pitch if the Belgian wizard were to join and both players would be in favour of an exit in search of more regular first team football.
Bale could also be out the door having struggled for game time due to his injury problems, with Manchester United interested in signing the Welshman.
