Zidane Wants Neymar To Join Eden Hazard At Real Madrid

Luis Suarez Told Neymar To Stay Calmed Amid Transfer Rumors

It looks like Real Madrid are more than willing to open up the door for another superstar to come in the summer, as Zinedine Zidane has pretty much claimed that he'd love to see Eden Hazard and Neymar playing together at Santiago Bernabeu.

Neymar recently stated that it would be a dream for him to play next to a player like Hazard, hinting at a potential move to Real Madrid in the summer amid the major splash Los Blancos are bound to make in this upcoming transfer window.

Real Madrid endured quite a terrible season after completely dominating Europe under Zidane's tutelage, so they're going to dig deep in the market to try and finally find a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

That's why Florentino Perez is likely going to give Zidane the green light to spend as much money as he wants to bring back superstar talent to Spain's capital, with players of the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard, Neymar, Christian Eriksen, and Sadio Mane coming to mind as possible reinforcements for Los Galacticos.

Moreover, when asked if Neymar could, in fact, realize his dream of playing side by side with Hazard at Santiago Bernabeu, Zidane did nothing to put the rumors to an end:

“Yes. A lot of players want to come here and play for Real Madrid, but let's see what happens in the future. Will I have plenty of power to decide on transfers and signings? No. I'm not even the boss in my own home! There are people here who are very important to the club that help make decisions and we want to make those together. The idea is to empower the attacking line for next season. Let's see what we can do," Zidane claimed in a press conference (via Marca).

Moreover, when asked about Gareth Bale's future amid the transfer rumors and the potential signing of Eden Hazard, Zidane didn't hesitate to claim that both could actually coexist in Real Madrid:

“Yes. All good players can play together. People told me that I wasn't compatible with (Yuri) Djorkaeff. What a lot of nonsense, man! You can see that Bale is happy. Whether he plays or doesn't play... he's had a lot of playing time under me. At the end of the season, we'll see what's what. I'm not the one who says what Gareth has to do now. He's a player who's part of our plans. He has played and he will play more before the end of the season," Zidane concluded.

It looks like it's going to be quite a busy summer for the winningest club in Europe.
