Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is being kicked into action over his interest in Lille star Eden Hazard. Florentino has Real chief Zinedine Zidane keeping close tabs on the Belgian dazzler this season, but the race for his signature is just about to go into overdrive.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United all had scouts at PSG on the weekend to see Hazard in action for Lille.

The news has alarmed Real's technical chiefs and put pressure on Florentino to step up his own plans to land the Ligue 1 Player of the Year.

Mega spending City have plans to buy Hazard in January for £30 million and loan him back to Lille for the remainder of the season.
