Zinedine Zidane discusses prospect of Gareth Bale teaming up with Eden Hazard

The need for more potency in attack has been painstakingly evident for Zidane since returning to manage the club, and the Frenchman has made it clear where they need to reinforce at the end of the season. Eden Hazard has been heavily tipped to move to the Santiago Bernabeu, with a number of other big names also being linked in the media, including Brazilian superstar Neymar.

Real Madrid visit Rayo Vallecano this evening in the penultimate away trip of a lacklustre season that has left them third in the La Liga table, 18 points behind champions Barcelona.

Will I have plenty of power to decide on transfers and signings? No.

"I think he [Vallejo] grabs hold of his [Guerra's] shirt, but not enough to stop him from running", Iturralde told Spanish radio station Cadena SER.

"It was very hard to make that decision, there were even moments when I hesitated and asked not to leave. They said the same thing about me and [Youri] Djorkaeff - it's nonsense". A lot of clubs including PSG want to sign Hazard as the player of his caliber brings trophies to club.

"Bale is happy, he has had playing minutes with me lately".

On that occasions a solitary goal was also good enough to down the Merengue, with Ezequiel Castillo netting to inflict defeat on a side coached by Fabio Capello and which included the likes of Roberto Carlos, Fernando Redondo, Raul and Davor Suker. I'm not the one who says what Gareth has to do now.

While it is not unusual for clubs to use players who are departing for kit promotion, Chelsea's use of Hazard indicates that the club still feels that they could keep the Belgian at Stamford Bridge.

According to a report from Italian outlet CalcioMercato, Real Madrid will be asking for €100 million before they consider selling the France worldwide and reigning World Cup champions.
