Inter target Eden Hazard has rejected claims that he has already spoken to Real Madrid about a possible summer move.
The Lille midfielder is on the Nerazzurri’s radar, but it was believed that Real Madrid were in pole position for him.
“Real boss Jose Mourinho hasn’t been in touch with me,” the 20-year-old stated. “Zinedine Zidane hasn’t either.
“I would be honoured if Zidane did speak to me. I’ve always been a big fan ever since he scored two goals in the 1998 World Cup Final against Brazil.
“He was my favourite player along with Thierry Henry.”
The creative midfielder is being linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs given that he is expected to be on the move next summer.
The Italian giants have confirmed an interest in the youngster and actually made an approach last August.
The Belgian was also contacted by Milan before the start of this season, while he understandably has admirers in England with Arsenal and Chelsea amongst the interested outfits.
Zidane, formerly of Juventus, is Real Madrid’s Director of Football.
