Real Madrid accept Zidane demands of landing Chelsea star Hazard

Real Madrid are yet to make an offer for Chelsea star Eden Hazard, it has been revealed.

AS insists Real are yet to table a first bid for the Belgian, though he is now their priority after completing a deal for Porto defender Eder Militao.

While Chelsea face a two window transfer ban, Real are confident they accept they must sell Hazard even if their appeal against the FIFA ruling is rejected.

Indeed, with Christian Pulisic due to arrive from Borussia Dortmund, the USA international will step in as a direct replacement for Hazard.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane has demanded president Florentino Perez bring Hazard to Madrid this summer.

Zidane has said in the past: "After Cristiano (Ronaldo) and (Lionel) Messi, Eden is the one I like the most, it's spectacular to see him play."
