Real Madrid reportedly reopened their pursuit of £100 million-rated Chelsea star Eden Hazard prior to reappointing Zinedine Zidane as manager on Monday, and their chances have only improved after his return.
Matt Law of the Telegraph wrote Real "have made a proposal to Chelsea," who are aware of Hazard's openness towards joining Los Blancos and the fact he has a little more than one year left on his contract.
It's reported Hazard hasn't given any indication he'll sign the £300,000-per-week contract Chelsea have offered him, and Bleacher Report's Dean Jones saw Zidane's reappointment as a key factor in the potential deal
The Frenchman has returned to the helm of Real 10 months after leaving the club, with whom he became the first manager to win three successive UEFA Champions League titles (2016-2018) in his first senior post.
Successors Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari—who was fired on Monday—failed to sustain the same levels of success, but Zidane's presence automatically makes the club a more appealing destination.
