Harry Kane Heads List Of Reported Madrid Replacements For Ronaldo

Talking to beIN Sports France ahead of Tuesday's World Cup semifinal clash between the two in Saint Petersburg, the Chelsea star spoke about the Paris Saint-Germain forward in glowing terms.

Speaking on the Transfer Window podcast last week, he said: "Chelsea have gone into this window preparing for the possibility they could lose Eden Hazard and Willian due to their contract situations - both in need of renewals - Willian has two years left. Zidane is someone special, it's true, but I think Real is everyone's dream", he said.

'Zidane or no Zidane, the white jersey [of Real] is special but the blue jersey suits me well so it does not bother me if I stay.

"Now, it is me watching his videos from time to time, and I have a lot of respect for him and what he is doing".

Manu de Juan of AS recently reported the former Lille man is on a shortlist of players who could replace Cristiano Ronaldo if he were to move to Juventus.


And even though he has missed out on the opportunity of playing under Zidane, Hazard admits the lure of playing for Real Madrid remains as strong as ever.

"With my brothers, we have always been more supporters of France than Belgium because we grew up with '98", Hazard is quoted by the Evening Standard.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have dropped their interest in French starlet Kylian Mbappe and won't be pursuing him this summer.

Hazard's fit in the capital likely wouldn't be a doubt, although one has to wonder whether he would be a good replacement stylistically for Ronaldo.

"Yes of course. Ballon d'Or is of course tied into how many goals you score". Mbappe has already flashed tantalising scoring potential, and at the age of 19, has unlimited room for growth. He later played down the comment, but doubts over his future at Madrid lingered, especially after he had also threatened to leave the previous year.
