Rea Madrid have emerged as late favourites to sign Lille winger Eden Hazard ahead of Manchester United and Liverpool.
Real’s new advisor and general legend Zinedine Zidane has expressed his interest in seeing Hazard playing at the Bernabeu.
The former French international, who now advises president Florentino Perez, believes it is possible the Belgian ace could be a Madrid player soon, despite Premier League teams Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal also being interested.
"What he has been doing for his club has been extraordinary," Zidane told Canal +. "Would it be possible to see him one day in Madrid? It may be."
Earlier this week Hazard revealed he would not leave the Ligue 1 leaders in january, despite being heavily linked with a move to Liverpool.
Roy Hodgson recently flew to France to watch his team mate Gervinho in action but came away from the game, between Lille and Monaco, raving about the 19-year-old instead.
However, Hazard has admitted he would be open to a move away from the French club in the summer, sparking speculation he was waiting for a move to Old Trafford rather than Anfield.
Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is adamant Manchester United will not do any business in January, but will be on the look out in the summer.
However Real, who are currently hoping to become European champions, believe they are in pole position to bring him to Spain in the summer.
