Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda is assuming that Real Madrid's appeal to FIFA will go through and their transfer ban removed. After reporting Real Madrid's interest in paying the €190 million release clause on Neymar's contract with FC Barcelona, Inda said that Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard is Real Madrid's top priority for this summer.

"Zidane just wants to sign Eden Hazard. He is on top of Real Madrid's shortlist for next summer," said Inda.

The French manager has always admitted that Hazard is one of his favorite players. He even said this about the Belgian attacker a few years ago:

"I like Eden Hazard. Everything he does on the field like it. I like his behavior, his decisive side and the fact [that he makes] progress every year. [He] still has a good margin of progression," explained Zidane.

Chelsea don't need to sell their players so Real Madrid would have to make a big offer in order to sign Hazard away from London.
