Real Madrid President: We’ve been trying to sign Hazard for years

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is hoping Chelsea star Eden Hazard joins the La Liga giants in the off-season.

“How are we supposed to talk to a club who are playing in a final?” Perez said when asked about a possible transfer for the Chelsea star. “We’ve been trying for a number of years to make Hazard a Real Madrid player, but we haven’t achieved it yet.”

“I’d really like Hazard to come to Real Madrid and really hope he does. He is one of the best footballers.”

It is set to be a busy transfer window for Madrid, with head coach Zinedine Zidane poised to overhaul a side that finished third in La Liga and bowed out of the Champions League in the last 16.
