Zinedine Zidane has requested Eden Hazard to replace Isco or James Rodriguez at Real Madrid according to Spanish outlet, Marca.

The former French international is slowly beginning to put his own stamp on his new Real Madrid squad and the reports suggest that both Isco and Rodriguez could be shown the door.

Zidane has identified both Hazard and Juventus’ in-demand midfielder, Paul Pogba as ideal replacements for the pair as Madrid look to rejuvenate their squad ahead of next season.

The Belgian winger has constantly been linked with moves away from Chelsea this season, with the Spanish capital looking the most likely of destinations, as it looks like Chelsea will be without Champions League football next season.

Both Madrid and Chelsea’s Champions League opponents, Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with moves for the winger, who is yet to rediscover his form of last season.

Hazard’s form has improved under Guus Hiddink, but he is yet to reach the dazzling level of ability that guided Chelsea to the Premier League trophy last season.
