Earlier, Legit.ng reported Real Madrid have reportedly began house hunting for Chelsea star Eden Hazard as they are confident of signing the Belgian this summer in a mega deal.

Since the return of Zinedine Zidane to Real Madrid, the Frenchman is said to be so interested in luring Eden Hazard to the Bernabeu for him to be part of his squad for next season.

Hazard's brace against West Ham United on Monday night, April 8, is reported to have increased Real Madrid's desire to sign the 28-year-old.

Sources in Spain claim talks are so advanced that Real Madrid's main target is house-hunting in the posh suburb of Pozuelo according to UK Sun.
