French legend Jean-Pierre Papin isn't surprised Real Madrid are chasing Lille star Eden Hazard.

Real chief Zinedine Zidane is working on beating the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool for the Belgium international.

Papin declared: "With the ball at his feet, he does things that few players are capable of. If he continues with this progression, he will go to reach the heights of Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi.

"I'd sign him in an instant. People go to stadiums just to watch him play."
