Transfer: Hazard Breaks Silence On Move To Real Madrid

Transfer: Hazard Breaks Silence On Move To Real Madrid

Karim Benzema scored twice at the Santiago Bernabeu as Real came from behind after Marc Cardona, starting only after an injury to Pedro Leon in the warm-up, gave Eibar a surprise lead. In total, more than a week without playing because they beat (2-1) Eibar at home on Saturday.

He has a year left on his contract and there are fears that Mauricio Sarri's side will lose him at the end of the season.

Asked about Hazard at a pre-match press conference on Friday, Zidane said: "He is a player I have always rated, as everyone knows".

"I want to finish top four and Europa League, we still have a lot to do and then we will see. It is not the time to talk about this".

Laurent Koscielny and Granit Xhaka both missed the last two games for Arsenal with foot and groin injury respectively.

Real Madrid's scoring issues this season have alarmed the club's board, who are already planning their attacking options for next season.

Many vaccine opponents believe medically baseless claims that inoculations can cause autism and other negative health effects. That's the point of vaccines - safe ways of making people immune to infections with limited side effects.

The 29-year-old's below-par performances and a lack of support from either coach or fans seem so inter-linked now that it is hard to know what comes first.

With the Portuguese star in the team, they reached 100 goals in 43 games last season and the season before that, in 35.

While Zinedine Zidane may be the best person in charge to oversee the necessary rebuild of the squad, his presence alone will not return the greatness of his previous era in charge.

"His goals have perhaps changed people's perception of him, but he has never changed as a player".

Real's win, coupled with Atletico Madrid's loss to Barcelona, means Zidane's men are only two points behind their cross-town rivals with seven games left to play.

The 46-year-old told Spanish daily Marca: "This season, we will not win anything, we know that".
