Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has reportedly made contact with one of Chelsea's star players in recent weeks.
According to Spanish publication Diario Gol, the Frenchman has contacted Belgium international Eden Hazard to discuss a possible move.
Zidane and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez are both said to be big admirers of the Premier League superstar.
The 26-year-old is apparently stalling over a new deal with the Stamford Bridge club in the hope that Real will make an offer.
The Belgian winger will wait until the end of the season before he decides whether or not he will sign the new £300 000 (R5.43 million) a week offer that is on the table from the Blues.
Hazard has openly stated before that he is a massive fan of Zidane and the work he has done at Real, but that does not mean he is ready to pack up and leave London just yet, having also made it clear he is currently happy in the UK.
The Spanish giants are looking add depth to their squad next season, and there are rumours that the Belgian could be the next "Galactico" to play in front of the Santiago Bernabeu.
The former Lille star has made 20 appearances for the Blues this season, scoring eight goals and assisting seven further strikes.
