Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is ready to offer Alvaro Morata as a part of a cash plus player deal to snap up Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, according to the latest reports.

Zidane has long been a huge admirer of the Chelsea winger and is keen to come up with everything possible to sign him before the next season.

And according to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are planning to use Morata in a deal to persuade Antonio Conte into offloading Hazard.

The Belgian star still has more than three years left on his current contract but Madrid are planning to bring in one more marquee player to their side after a Fifa ban prevented them from signing players in January.

The La Liga giants were given much hope earlier in the season when Hazard said he would only ever consider to leave Chelsea only after winning another Premier League title, which they are apparently on course to complete before May.

Conte attempted to land Morata last summer but Real Madrid were reluctant to let him go having taken out their buy-back option with Juventus.

If Morata doesn’t sound good, then Isco and James Rodriguez could also reportedly be used as part of the negotiations to force Chelsea to start business talks for Hazard.

The report further states Real also wants to bolster their goalkeeping options by signing David De Gea.

The Manchester United keeper has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu over the past two transfer windows but the Premier League big boys have so far kept hold of their star performer.

However, Zidane believes De Gea will join Real Madrid this summer but he also knows the Spaniard doesn’t want to force his exit and upset United fans. If a switch for De Gea fails once again, Zidane will shift his focus to Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois.
