Old photo of Eden Hazard donning a Zidane shirt surfaces online after Real Madrid move

Real Madrid signing Eden Hazard in the ongoing summer transfer window is the talk of the football town. It is one of the biggest signings for the Los Blancos since the departure of their hero, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Departure of CR7

Real Madrid were in desperate need to replace Cristiano after the Portuguese signed for Italian champions Juventus.

The Los Blancos suffered one of their worst seasons in recent history as they were unable to grab any major trophies with Lopetegui at the helm for the majority of the season.

The club, famed for their performance in the Champions League, got kicked out of it in the R16 at the hands of Ajax, losing on an aggregate scoreline of 5-3.

The formidable Spanish giants, were humiliated at their own home ground where they lost 4-1 to the Dutch champions.  

The Return of Zidane

With a string of mishaps in every competition, the club officials decided to sign Zinedine Zidane as the head coach yet again.

With the end of the 2018-19 season, the Frenchman wasted no time to sign Eden Hazard from Chelsea. The news was in the air for quite some time. But was officially announced after Chelsea won the Europa League.

Hazard’s Summer Transfer

The Belgian captain since then has taken to the internet to announce his delight at joining his dream club.

A childhood picture of Eden & his brothers recently surfaced online & immediately went viral. It portrays them wearing a 1998 Zidane France World Cup shirt.

The 7 year old Hazard was quick to identify his idol. If only then somebody could whisper to young Eden what the future has in store for him.

The Twitterati are gushing over this cute picture. Some are calling it destiny & yet others are questioning Hazard’s support for France instead of Belgium.

A Dream Come True

Today this man has earned the opportunity to be coached by his idol at one of the most prestigious clubs in the world. One can only imagine his euphoria at this sudden turn in his already successful career.

On top of that, word’s been traveling that the Belgian would be given the club’s most important jersey number: 7. Now that sure is something to take pride in. As much as Eden is excited to join the Los Blancos, the club too is desperate for an immediate turnaround.
