EDEN HAZARD has allegedly been contacted by Zinedine Zidane over a move to Real Madrid.

Madrid could face the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Manchester United or Liverpool in Monday's last-16 draw.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has insisted that his side will be fine come the New Year, and has given an update on the injury to Raphael Varane, following his side's victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

"On Monday we will see who we get, but knowing that it will be a hard opponent", Zidane said. But they still eased into an 2-0 lead inside 13 minutes through Borja Mayoral's neat clipped finish and Cristiano Ronaldo's 20 yard curler, which brought another record for the Portuguese as the first player ever to score in all six UCL group games in the same season.

The Spanish giants are playing for their third successive European crown.

"He has hurt himself and we have to wait the scan results that will come tomorrow", Zidane said after Real's win, as quoted by Marca.
