Zinedine Zidane has admitted that he likes Eden Hazard a lot and is keeping an eye on the Chelsea forward.
The Belgian has been in amazing form for the Premier League leaders this season, netting 18 goals and providing 10 assists. He was recently nominated for both the PFA Player and Young Player of the Year awards.
Chelsea recently tied Hazard’s long-term future to the club, by ensuring he signed a bumper five-and-a-half year deal at Stamford Bridge.
However, the 24-year-old has now emerged as a potential transfer target for the La Liga giants.
“There are players I keep an eye on and who I like a lot, like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, of course. They’re fantastic players, but I like Eden Hazard a lot too,” Zidane told Fifa.com.
“I enjoy everything he does on the pitch. I like the way he carries himself, that decisive streak in him and the fact that he’s improving every year. He can still get better too.
“I think he’s a big reason why Chelsea are on top of the table.”
Hazard has previously confessed that Zidane is his idol and the reason why he took the No. 10 shirt at Chelsea.
