Eden Hazard may be convinced to snub Real Madrid and sign a new contract at Chelsea following the arrival of brother Kylian.

That’s according to the Express who reckon Zinedine Zidane is chasing Hazard once again after trying and failing with a move one year ago.

Real are apparently lining up the Chelsea star to join them in 2018 as he spent the entire summer injured with an ankle problem.

Cristiano Ronaldo is entering his twilight years at the Bernabeu while Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema are both at risk of getting the boot.

But Hazard could yet remain at Stamford Bridge after his brother Kylian was snapped up late in the window.

Whether Eden remains with the champions remains to be seen, with the forward making no secret of his admiration for Zidane.

But Real are also looking at a number of other players including Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann.

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala is also on their radar but a move for Monaco youngster Kylian Mbappe is off the cards after he secured a loan move to PSG with the view to a permanent switch.
