Is That A Hint At Something? Chelsea’s Mega Star Praised By Madrid Manager

Eden Hazard

Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid recently met Chelsea in a pre-season friendly. Even though the La Liga giants won the game 3-2 the French and Real Madrid legend has taken time out to heap praise on Eden Hazard.

Eden Hazard had been long considered as a target for Real Madrid but after a poor display last season the La Liga outfit has not acted this transfer window or has not fueled any rumor till now. However, the praise from Zidane is hardly bound to go unnoticed.

Speaking after Madrid’s victory over Chelsea, Zidane said: “There are rumours about tons of players potentially linked with this club.

“He is a very, very good player. Obviously all clubs want the best players but he is a Chelsea player.”

In all fairness, the Belgian came off the bench after 25 minutes and scored two goals to give some fight to the Champions League champions. While praise is definitely deserved by Hazard, considering the time of the season and the scenario where Real Madrid has not made any big signing so far, it does sound a little suspicious. While Zidane praised Hazard he also ended his statement by saying that Hazard is a Chelsea player. Question is, for how long?
