Zidane my dream coach: Hazard

Hazard, 26, was reportedly one of Real's top targets before breaking his ankle while on global duty in the summer.

But his Belgium head coach Martinez revealed that Hazard is a positive influence in the dressing room, which will be of interest to Chelsea fans given David Luiz's recent fallout with Conte.

"Zinedine Zidane would be a dream to have as a coach", the Belgian worldwide was quoted as saying by the Independent on Friday.

The Express add that Chelsea wanted to hand Hazard a new contract worth £300,000-a-week to stay at Stamford Bridge. Speaking on Zidane, who was Hazard's idol growing up, he said, "Everyone knows the respect I have for Zidane as a player, but also as a manager". He was my idol.

Chelsea forward Eden Hazard remains a doubt though as Belgium take things carefully with him.

"He (Loftus-Cheek) has to show us now he is the real deal and show everyone at Chelsea, "Why are you letting me go on loan?"
