Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Spanish League defending champions Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez this summer.

Los Blancos signed Chelsea hero Eden Hazard in a deal valued at around €115 million in August 2019 but the Belgian has failed to live up to his billing.

The 30-year-old has spent more time on the sidelines than on the pitch since his mega move from Chelsea almost two years ago due to a series of injuries and lack of required fitness to do the job.

Coach Zinedine Zidane is now hoping to bring the highly-rated Algerian star to Santiago Bernabeu with the hope he will put an end to their search for Ronaldo's replacement.

The 36-year-old ended his nine-reign with the Galacticos and joined Juventus in 2018 after failing to reach a new deal with the club, and since then, they have not found a player like him.
