Eden Hazard future: Zinedine Zidane targeting West Ham ace Felipe Anderson as alternative to signing Blues forward

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is targeting Felipe Anderson as an alternative signing to Eden Hazard, reports claim.

The Frenchman, who was reappointed as Los Blancos chief earlier this month, has been promised a massive overhaul of his current crop of players and has already signed Porto defender Eder Militao.

Anderson is now a target for Real Madrid

However, according to Sky Sports, Zidane is now drawing his attention away from Hazard and is now targeting Hammers winger Anderson.

Hazard has always idolised Zidane and always dreamt of a move to Los Blancos – but Chelsea’s two-window transfer ban is appearing to be a major stumbling block in the move.

Chelsea are seemingly unwilling to part ways with their talisman as they cannot replace him and therefore may keep hold of their talisman for another season before his contract runs out.

Hazard, who has scored 13 goals and added 11 assists in 29 league matches this season, has so far refused to sign a new deal with the west London club.

Hazard has been constantly linked with Real Madrid

And the Blues’ refusal to sell their prize asset has prompted Zidane to instead target Anderson.

The Brazilian is enjoying a good debut season for the Hammers, scoring eight goals in 31 matches.

However, he recently said he wanted to emulate the success of Paolo Di Canio and stay in east London and stay for the foreseeable future.

He said: “I just want to do my best for the club, win as many titles as possible. I am happy here, I am not looking for something else.”
