Newcastle want... Hazard?
That’s according to El Chiringuito. It is also rumored that Real Madrid’s autoreply mechanism answered the following:
Okay, on a serious note, take this rumor with a grain of salt... or better yet, cook your next soup with seawater to be sure.

Not Real Madrid-related anymore but for what it’s worth...
So we’ve been reading all these rumours about Zinedine Zidane’s next port. One such rumor that came up a little too often, was that the ex-Madrid head coach would replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United - who aren’t exactly setting the EPL on fire these days, just the Old Trafford. Well, sources indicate that Zizou doesn’t exactly have the hots for said job, although the Athletic reports that Solskjaer’s position is safe for the time being.

Just for the sake of a (good) conversation though...
Would you like to see Zidane coach the Reds?
Have a nice day and may the Madridismo be with you.
